i started this blanket aged 9, i kept working on it a bit, then putting it down, then doing some more, then having no yarn etc. etc. until finally in october i decided it could be finished, big enough to use as a bedspread on my double bed it is pictured here draped over and armchair


and here, folded and a closer shot to better show the colours


i left the edge plain rather than scalloping so that if in the future i really want to i can add more

Nice job! I'm sure you have all the basic stitches down pat now and can move on to many many more crochet projects in your future.

i can do basic stitch and that's in, it's an oversized granny square, not pattern to follow, which is where i fall apart when it comes to trying to make some of the things i see on here, so cute, but so confusing

Your granny square blanket is lovely! Great job!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.
