So, my friend's blanket broke... and they've asked me to fix it. I'm not sure how to go abouts doing this.
I know how to crochet granny squares and such, and I could learn more if I need to.

here are some pictures of it's broken-ness:


and closer:


Basically it looks like it somehow got unraveled. I'm not very good at explaining =/

How should I go abouts doing this?
What would be easy to do also?

Hey! I have the same problem, cept some rounds of the granny square is disappearing.

Meanwhile. I'd take a tapestry needle and matching yarn and go in and out the unraveled stitches in a zig zag pattern.

It sounds simple enough.. I just need to find matching yarn.

That's what I'd do - your best bet may just be to whip-stitch them together at this point.
