Granny Square Doll Blanket- My Current WIP

20150807_143927 This is my latest WIP. It’s a pattern called Granny Square Doll Blanket and can be found in the book Afghans To Knit & Crochet from Better Homes and Gardens (circa 1986: http://www.amazon.com/Better-Homes-Gardens-Afg…/…/0696015501 ). It’s a great way to use up all my left-over yarns, and the squares don’t take very long to make (about 10-15 mins per square). I love to make granny squares…just the tying in of the loose ends can be tedious at times. But the end result will be fabulous. I’m making the blanket slightly larger than what the pattern states the size should be. I’ve simply used different hook and yarn sizes. The pattern calls for a 3.75 mm hook and 3 ply sport weight yarn, whereas I am using a 4.5 mm hook and worsted weight yarn. Each square, following the patterns sizing is 2.5″ x 2.5″, and using my sizing, each square is 3″ x 3″. There will be 63 squares plus a border. The finished project will be (according to pattern sizing) 22.5″ x 29.5″, with border. Below is a photo I took of what the finished product will look like (note: this is not my work, this is the photo that appears in the pattern book).
