This wonderful little blanket was my colorful creation from last summer when I needed to keep my hands busy but didn’t want to cover myself with a lap full of yarn. After all, when the temperatures rise above 60 degrees, no one who works with yarn wants to tackle a big blanket project.
Using an “H” hook and worsted weight yarn, I was able to create a mix and match of colorful combinations following the traditional granny square stitching. The squares measured just over 6″ and I attached 10 squares to create one row and then ten rows to each other in order to create a perfect square piece. I was fortunate enough that I did not have to do any blocking as the squares were almost perfectly sized and squared. Because I wanted a ridge showing the connection of squares, I used a single crochet joining stitch and then went around the entire outside of the piece in single crochet for a lovely finish.
