Yeee! Finally it's finished! My crocheted granny square plaid. It took me months to make this (half way I even started all over because I decided to change the design of the squares. I had to crochet half of them all over again). A few weeks ago Ive set a deadline to finish this plaid and the deadline was Christmas! And Ive made it just in time before Christmas I'm so very happy with my plaid! I love the mix of grey and blue colours with the white. And it's nice and warm (and of course my cat loves it too!).

Free pattern below and at: http://blendingblue.blogspot.com/2009/12/crocheted-plaid.html

   About 500 600 gr white wool
   50 gr dark grey
   50 gr light grey
   50 gr dark blue
   50 gr light blue
   50 gr mid blue or multi coloured wool
   Crochet hook 5,5 (European size)

Crochet 25 squares according to the pattern. Crochet each first and second row in different colours (for example: row 1 in light grey and row 2 in dark grey) and change to white from the third row. Make sure you make one square of each colour combination. A few combinations will be made double to match the requirement of 25 squares (which combinations you make double is up to you). Then sew all squares together using white wool to make a large square of 5 x 5 squares. Finnish off all loose threads. Then crochet a border of singe crochets in dark grey.

Have fun!

this is lovely! Thanks for the pattern as well!

maybe I'll make one too, if I ever manage to stay focused on a project long enough :3

you can find a lot of crafty tutorials in my blog.

Oh ya..I have serious focus problems too...but granny squares, I think, are the perfect short-attention-span project.  Each one works up quikcly, and they're very portable.

This blanket is beautiful! Blue & White together are gorgeous. Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

That is very nice. I so wish I had the patience to make something like that.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments.

Veggiechef: you are totally right. The granny squares make this project a wonderful thing to work on. Also I prefer working away loose threads during the process (so you don't have to do all threads at the end Wink

and I would looooove to see some results if anyone is going to make one

Another suggestion: you can also make it with cotton wool so it's no big deal if you finish the plaid in summer Grin
