Granny Square Blanket: It’s coming together


Granny Squares

Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a great weekend so far.

I was off work yesterday and I decided it was finally time to put my granny square baby blanket together. I have to admit, I made all of the squares ages ago then got nervous about crocheting/stitching them together. Ridiculous, eh?

Anyway, after being pointed towards Attic24’s simple method of crocheting the squares together with a slip stitch (thanks to the lovely ladies who read my initial blog post!) I got stuck in yesterday.

I’ve now stitched all of the squares together and have crocheted a half double crochet border in the same colour as the yarn I used for the joins.

I’m thinking of adding a colourful border with the wool I used in the squares to give a mini rainbow effect. What do you think, or do you have any top tops for finishing off a granny square blanket? I would love to hear your ideas.
