Details of swap:
This is Round 1 of several rounds which will continue until we all have enough motifs to make our afghans. The number of rounds we have will depend on how many participants we have in each round.
If you don't know how to make a grannies daughter, it's as simple as pie:)) A grannies daughter is the first round of a traditional granny square.....that's it:)) The pattern can be found here
A child's afghan requires 240 motifs and an adult size afghan requires 720 motifs. As stated in the pattern, each motif should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4". So it's important to check your gauge so that all motifs will be the correct size. These little critters are SOOOO quick and easy to make:))
Ok, you will send 40 motifs in assorted colors to 2 partners. This is a great project to use up those little bits & pieces of scrap yarn you have laying around:))
All motifs MUST be made in 4-ply worsted weight yarn, or if you're in the UK the yarn equivalent will be 10-ply aran. Please be sure to check your guage to make sure your motifs are the correct size. We wouldn't want to receive some motifs that are 1 1/2" and some that are 2 1/4". Your motifs should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4". Size is important!!! REMEMBER: It takes no more than 5 minutes...usually less....to make a 'grannies daughter'
) These little critters are super quick and easy to whip up:)))SPECIAL NOTE: Sendout date has been extended to 10/13/08, so that will give everyone 6 weeks to get all their grannies daughters made and sent out.
