Beautiful Grannies!

Hi everyone!


Have you ever made a Granny square? There are plenty of video's on 'You Tube' to show you the technique. I sometimes think that starting with a Granny square is easier than starting with a crocheted chain and learning the basics that way.

I love how using different colours of yarn can make the squares look so...different.  During the past 32 months I have had the priviledge of receiving lots of beautiful squares for our blankets from all over the world, but I keep coming back to the 'Granny square' as one of my favourites of all time.

Today I have finished SIBOL 254 and this blanket is made up of purely Grannies! All different colours of yarn and I do hope you like it as much as I do!

Let's take a look now.

Thanks to everyone for contributing squares for this blanket.

Such pretty Granny squares once again!

Love these squares!

Butterflies too! Thank you!

The border is from the book 'Around The Corner Crochet Borders' by Edie Eckman.
A great book giving easy instructions.
I decided to crochet in just plain cream as there were so many colours going on in this blanket it's always difficult knowing what to do.
Isn't it gorgeous? I love this one once again.  Another pretty blanket for the Ladies in the home. Thanks to everyone that contributed squares for this blanket.

I'm always accepting 'Butterflies' as you know. Why not join our Butterfly Group on 'SIBOL?'
Here's the link to Nettie's Butterflies.
Please mail me for my address if you want to make any.

  1. So simple yet fabulous. Probably one of my favorites. But, then they all are.

  2. Goodness, Sue, 254 blankets. Wow!!!! This one is very pretty and your choice of cream is just perfect.

  3. Squares are lovely, the border is great

  4. Dear Sue,
    I have given you the SUNSHINE Award on my post today. And if you don't have time for it, please know that I understand, but of all people, you DESERVE the SUNSHINE Award!!!

    And yes, I LOVE that Granny Square blanket!
    And I also love seeing my Stone Mountain square in the Jersey Mencap blanket!
