I’ve been working on a crochet granny along over the last 6 weeks by Zeens and Roger
It’s been great fun getting all the granny squares made for this – I was a bit worried I would be tight on time for getting them all finished but I managed to get them all made and put together with a few days to spare!
Now it’s all finished you can see the final pattern of the blanket – a Minecraft earth block blanket. I do like my Minecraft makes – I’ve already made a creeper blanket, creeper, squid, ghast blanket, mooshroom cow blanket, and a wolf blanket and I still have a few more ideas for some more!
I made the blanket 10×10 grannies and completed 2 rows of sc stitches around the whole blanket once I had sewn it all together.
So glad I joined in with this CAL I’m looking forward to taking part in another one!
Squeezing into the stack of completed grannies (from the simply crochet granny square a week app) are five more! We have:
I’ve only got a backlog of 11 now until I have finally caught up! It’s going to be a very tight squeeze in their storage box once they go in! Won’t be long now until I can put them all together into a quilt – I am waiting until I have got them all finished rather than making it up as I go so that I can lay them all out and decide where they look best placed.
I am still slowly plodding on in my mission to catch up with the 1 a week granny square pattern from Simply Crochet, and have managed to rustle up a couple more! Welcome to the pack – First Granny, Granny Thelma, and Granny Joyce.
The finished pile is gradually increasing, only 22 to go until I have caught up! Luckily, I am really enjoying making them!
Every week for the last few months I have been downloading a free granny square pattern through the granny square app by Simply Crochet. I think they are brilliant – I cannot believe the variation you can get from just a granny square! I like them so much I have been thinking of something I could do using them, I have finally decided (after 28 patterns and counting) to make them all and join them up into one big quilt.
I am going to aim to make the one granny square each week when I download the pattern, however, the downside is that I have quite a bit of catching up to do before I can get to doing this (only 28!!). I have just managed to get started and so far have made 3 of them: Granny Edna, Granny Pat, and Granny Doreen. I think they look great! I haven’t stuck to a colour scheme I am just going to make them with whatever wool leftovers I have. I am going to make them all first and then set about joining them together as then I can lay them all out and decide the best layout for them before attaching together. I will put up the next ones as soon as I get them finished, 3 down and a long way to go…
