Wonderful!  I love how colorful it is.  I made a large granny rectangle once, just for a different look.

I thought my 5 year old was the only one that did the "burrito wrap" in my ghans lol

It's doesn't stop the older they get - my 14 yo son still wraps himself up this style while watching tv.

Quote from: DebbieDoo
Were all the yarns you used the same texture/weight/brand?  Does it matter if it is or not?

DebbieDoo, I've done granny squares with different textures and brands and it's worked out fine.  I've never tried different weights but I would only do different weights if I was doing one large granny like this.  If you were making a number of small ones to sew together then I wouldn't because if you use a lighter weight, the rows would be smaller and your squares would be different sizes and hard to join together.
