One Giant Granny Square

I have spent some of this month trying to get through some of my ever growing work in progress list

First off was a Giant Granny Square Blanket that I started before Emily was born, that’s right, over two years ago!!

I had originally intended to make a really big granny square blanket, but there is a reason that people don’t make blankets out of one giant granny square….it seriously starts to lose it’s shape the bigger it gets.


I decided in the end to call it a day after 25 rounds and make a doll sized granny square blanket instead. So in actual fact it is a giant granny square, if you are a doll!

I finished off the blanket with a scalloped edge worked over 5 stitches, which looks quite sweet I think

Emily loves the blanket, but spent far too much time trying to wrap herself in to, before deciding to wrap her Miffy toy in it instead

Feels good to get something done that had been sitting around for far too long, for no reason at all!

Do you use January as a fresh start or do you, like me spend some time trying to clear the decks?

  • Have you tried turning the blanket to the other side every time you do a round,like you would doing rows of dc,it stops the blanket leaning to one side.I find it works for me.

  • Brilliant tip, thank you! I must say, I’m not very experienced when it comes to crochet and I need all the help I can get…
