Over the last year I have continued to practice my crochet in the form of treble crochet granny squares. It’s been fun using different yarns and sizes of hooks.
I’ve made some little granny square bags and have a lovely stack of squares sat in a bag. So I’ve decided to embark on my first blanket! I’ve made 30 squares in 3 different colours, white, pale pink and a dusky pink. I think they look really good together, but my problem now is how to join them together so they lie flat?
I’ve seen blankets where the squares are joined directly together, I presume they have been sewn together somehow. I’ve also seen them with a crochet border between them. I like the thought of having a border in white but I’m not sure how to go about it. Any help would be gratefully received.
I think I’ll be hunting round Youtube for some ideas and tutorials!!
In the meantime I’ve embarked on another blanket (or is it an afghan?) as I discovered a lovely ball of cream double knit yarn in a drawer in the spare room. I don’t know what I had been saving it for but it’s now on it’s way to being a blanket!
I’ll keep you posted on how I get on.
