I buy wool at sales and thrift shops, often not knowing what I'll make with it. This lot was sitting about for a while.

There was only one part skein of green, so that became the center colour, as each outer row requires more yarn than the row beneath it. I got 60 centres out of it - so that decided the size of the blanket.

I had plenty of beige, so used it as the outside row and to join.


Art and Craft Supplies

8 ply/worsted wool - 4 colours
4mm crochet hook

The border was made of trebles: 2 rows black and 3 rows beige. One treble into every space along the outside edges and 3 trebles into the corner spaces to keep the blanket corners square.


Joining Squares: I love this method for joining Granny Squares. Carina explains it so well :)
