I have a massive stash of yarn, especially oddballs & leftovers skeins from previous projects.  Every so often, usually when I'm in between projects or need a break from a project, I grab a few of these stashed yarns and whip up granny squares.  No rhyme or reason to my color schemes or patterns, just whatever I grab and feel like doing.  I have finally gathered up these squares and made them into a proper ghan.  I let my kiddos figure out where each square should go.  It measures 66"x49" and is quite cozy. Haven't really decided it's home...but I'll probably be keeping this one.


Yarn Used: Red Heart Super Saver, Red Heart Soft, Bernat Denim-style, Caron Simply Soft, Caron Paints, Vanna, Lion Brand Jiffy, and lots of mystery oddballs
Hook Used: I Hook
Pattern Used: Classic Granny Square
Square Size: 7" (prior to round of black sc)
Joined Method: Single Crochet
Edging: working around, continuing the granny pattern of side & then sc around
Final Afghan Size: 66"x49"


little wonky here because cats kept photobombing & wrinkling up the ghan...seriously, this is one of the only pics without a kitty invasion

~*closeup so perhaps you can see edging*~

I've always loved granny blankets like this.
When I was a kid, I remember choosing favorite squares in each of my grandma's blankets.
I think that on yours, my favorite would actually be the one you did a closeup of, I love blues and greens.
