This is the first blanket I made with the granny squares - the traditional every round a different color, each square different from the other and edged in black. A real beauty but labor intensive.
Still takes a lot of time but since the squares are all the same, you can do them assembly style. I made this one for a friend to match her living room. Turned out very nice!
This type of square is not as labor intensive as the squares where each round changes color so it is easier to get done in a timely manner. This one I also used a zig zag chain stitch to hook the squares together which was quite fun and gave the blanket a unique look.
Hope you let your creativity flow and make your own granny square - small or large, one color or 100 - do what makes you happy!
