Finished just in time for the onset of cold weather. Oh wait, it’s always cold! The blanket is a basic granny square one. There are many tutorials available online. I used DK to aran weight and 5mm hook.
I made a large, probably king size blanket and the intention was to use many different stash yarns with a creamy white borders to tie the colours together. Turns out my stash is pretty colour-coordinated. I’ve used many different yarns, from acrylic to handspun and a lot of wool.
I ran out of the white yarn three times and I ended up using 3 different off-white yarns. The difference is barely noticeable. I made the all of the squares first and then joined them together with single crochet. The painful part was weaving in all of the ends. Minimum of 6 ends per square, some squares had even more.
It turned out lovely indeed. Cozy and heavy, just under 2kgs. I plan on making another one, I enjoyed making the squares immensely. Each square is so quick to complete and so portable!
