My First Ever Granny Squares Blanket WIP

Crochet Granny Squares Blanket WIP

A little while ago I started my very first granny squares blanket. It was during the time when I wasn’t feeling so well. I felt the need to do something, so this was nice to do after the girls were in bed and I could just sit and crochet.

I started it by using some yarn I had in my stash (all are Lily Sugar n’ Cream brand). Although turns out the gold color is discontinued!!!! I found this out when I ran out of what I had and couldn’t find it any where. I felt so blessed to find a lady that carries discontinued yarns in her online shop! I bought a bunch of them so I wouldn’t run out again. That was a close one. I had already done quite a few squares and would have been a little sad to not be able to finish it.

I used a pattern from the above book. It’s a fairly easy block and I’m just using that same one and changing the colors those four times. I can’t wait until it is finished! And since this one is for miss E, J has told me she gets one next.

    Your squares look great so far. I’m so glad you were able to get some more yarn. That would have been a total bummer. I just ordered this book from Amazon. Looking forward to “grannying” this summer!

    Beautiful! Although I know how to knit, I’m really new to crocheting, but I’d love to do a granny square blanket! So old-timey and adorable :0

    This will be beautiful! I have been intending to make a granny square pillow cover for some time but haven’t yet started! This makes me want to move it up on the list.
