Purple and Blue Crochet Granny Square Blanket by sapphiresphinx Purple and Blue Crochet Granny Square Blanket by sapphiresphinx
Crochet. Wheeee, my first blanket. It took foreeeeever to finish! It was a Christmas present for my mom, and it covers a full/double sized bed.

I didn't really have any sort of plan when I started it. I just kind of loaded up on a bunch of colors and went where it took me. I think it turned out all right.

Devotees of my work (aka: literally no one ever) will recognize that collage lurking in the background: fav.me/d31ne4p

Pattern credit for blanket: Me
Pattern credit for squares: This rockin' book!

Thank you! I didn't. I did use patterns for the individual squares from the book I linked in the description, but I played the overall pattern of the blanket by ear.

That is so beautiful <3 It looks expertly done, and the color choices are harmonious and peaceful. I can tell by the way it lays when folded that it must be incredibly soft. Yarn blankets are so warm. That will be a real delight.

Thank you! :) I'm sorry, I actually have no idea! I kind of just went at it and ended up buying more yarn as needed.

That is beautiful. I really love the boarder. What type of edging is that? It is so different from anything I've seen before.
