Granny Square Blanket

I made my first blanket! I found this free pattern on Lion Brand’s website. You do need to make an account, but it’s free!

The blanket worked up very quickly, which I was happy about. I was afraid it was going to take me a long time!

The yarn I used was Impeccable Loops and Threads in True Grey, Lavender, Soft Rose, and White.

This was my first time ever doing a granny square. I thought they would be a lot harder to make! I can’t wait to make more granny square blankets. Does anyone know why it is called a granny square?

I’m sad I didn’t get any better pictures. I made this blanket as a present, and finished it an hour before I had to give it away! The sun was also setting quickly, making the picture quality not as nice. Oh well, I know my friends are getting a good use out of this warm blanket!

Happy crocheting!
