Like many of the crafters in the world, I’ve ‘collected’ quite a bit of yarn over the years. I know I buy it to use but for some reason I don’t get to that point of using it faster than I need it. And now, I have a laughable amount of yarn that I have to store, organize and finish up. What to do, what to do?
I’ve got just about two months until Christmas, and now I know from experience that EVERYONE LOVES A CROCHETED BLANKET. So the big plan is to make dozens of 12×12 inch granny squares, using double strands of yarn, and let the family mix and match the squares they want in their blankets.
This frees me up to make any kind of squares I want to create as long as they are all the same size, and it will create a sort of ‘custom’ blanket for everyone. I can’t wait to get this going!!
Here is the first batch of squares:
My hook is 6 inches long, so this gives you an idea of how thick and big this granny really is.
