Details of swap:

This is Round 7 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 (a post in the thread is not sufficient)! 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:

Wow!  Soon as I get finish up the birthday swap I'm sending in my questionnaire.  I've wanted to make a granny afghan for a long time, so it'd be great to get a bunch of squares from talented Craftsters  Wink

Does it matter what type of yarn used as long as it's worsted weight? Meaning, are they to be acrylic, wool...etc?

These aren't full granny squares- they're only the first round of a granny square. But, you could use them as the center, and then add a round of all one color to join them together. I think one of the links above has directions for that...

They should be acrylic, unless your partner wants something different (you could discuss it with your partner once they are assigned). Mine are all acrylic, since I'm using them all together in a blanket. It wouldn't work if I had some wool ones that shrunk when I washed it... I wonder how cotton GDs would work? Hmmmm... I may have found a use for all of the random bits of cotton yarn leftover from washcloth making... it could make a fun spring/summer blanket! Yikes! I'd better finish the first one I have....

It's a good little swap to practice your double crochet skills on Wink

PS Stare at my avatar for a few minutes... and then send in your questionnaire Wink

I need all acrylic. A cotton GD blanket would be heavy, but you could probably link them together and make a washcloth.  Smiley

Ha!  I'm practicing a bit first to see if I can do it correctly.  My first attempt is lopsided and I don't really know why.  :-/

Cotton granny's daughters would definitely make interesting washcloths.  I'm going to go find those leftover skeins of cotton I know I have...
