Details of swap:

This is Round 3 of the Granny’s Daughters Swap! If you don't know how to make a granny’s daughter, it's pretty easy!  A granny’s 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.  

You will send 40 motifs in assorted colors to 2 partners (for a total of 80).  This is a great project to use up those little bits & pieces of scrap yarn you have laying around. Note: If you would like only 1 partner or would like a 3rd partner (first-time swappers are limited to a maximum of 2 partners), make sure to indicate this in your questionnaire. If you would like a 3rd partner, it may depend on the number of folks who sign up.

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 gauge 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 only takes a few minutes to make one granny’s daughter. If you get started when you sign up, you’ll have the bulk of the work done by the time partners are assigned  Wink

Weaving in the tails: The directions call for a 6" tail to be left at the end. Depending on their joining method, some folks might prefer to have that outside end woven in. There is a question on the questionnaire for you to express a preference. All starting tails must be woven in!

Positive feedback on this swap will be left once your partners have all received, and once you have posted pics of what you have received. You must remember to PM the organizer when you SEND and RECEIVE! Poor communication and failure to post pics of what you received will be noted in your feedback if you do not. Thanks!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Hooray! I'm about to officially add you to the swap Wink


I really want to do this round but don't know if I can, i'm thinking Huh

I've been so busy lately, myself! But, I can always find a few minutes here and there to whip up a few GDs. I'll be packing a bag of supplies and keeping them in the car so I can work on them when I have time after school before any evening events. Of course, I don't have any little ones running around Wink

Well damn you!!!!  Wink Fine, I'll sign up when I get back from camping.  Cheesy

Yay!

Dooooo eeeet! I know I really shouldn't, what with school and Christmas presents, but I can't really resist. I can churn out 40 during a night of TV, so I'll probably have them done before November 2. That's the plan at least. Roll Eyes I timed myself; I think I can do one in 2 minutes.  Wink

These granny daughter/low key swaps are so addicting!

I don't know about this one, I really want to but it's a bit scary. I also think I do my granny squares differently, my first round is 12 dc in a magic ring, the next round ends up with 4 corner groups with 2 3xdc groups in each 3rd gap (if that makes sense?)

I can't see the pattern on the website linked.  Undecided

The pattern is basically *3dc ch2* four times, you could do that in a magic ring, I usually work into the first ch then use that tail to tighten up the middle hole if needed.

Ah ha, it doesn't, but I think as long as you get it to look like all the others it'll be ok no matter which way you do them.

Like, as long as they look like THESE then you're on the right track. If they're all funkified, then no.  Roll Eyes
