I'm not sure I understand the problem you're having, exactly...

When you make a granny square, you should have more shells (groups of 3 dc stitches) in a round than you did in the previous round.  The first will have 4 (one per side), the second will have 8 (two per side), the third will have 12 (3 per side), and so on.

The trick to making a really big granny square is to just keep adding rounds, and doing your 4 increases (or corners) in the same place each time.

The problem with making one big granny square, and this is true for any pattern worked in the round, is that the bigger you go, the longer a round will take to do.

Ok I see what I was doing I was counting my corners. it is working right. I feel like a total moron now. Thanks!

So I'm trying to make a giant granny square blanket. And I realized its not getting as big as fast as I think it should. I realized I am only doing five shells in one round then four in the next. And all the giant granny square blankets I've seen have a WHOLE lot more than that. But I don't know how to do it! Help Please!

I know it's not original or anything, but I made a giant granny square blanket. I'm actually happy with the way it turned out and I'm a little surprised with myself that I actually stuck with a project long enough to finish it. I used simply soft yarn so it's really soft and light weight.

Ok So I learned to just do six dc in the corners to make a granny square. But It looks like you did more than that! where did you learn to do it?

Any suggestions on REALLY soft yarn that I can make a granny square out of with a big sized hook so I can pick some up while I'm there?
