I just love what all you can do with making Granny Squares. This afghan is made with half and half color granny square. The designs that you can make by sewing the squares together are amazing. You can be inspired by sewn quilts like I have or make up your own. As you can see this covers the top of my queen size bed.
Materials you will need: A Crochet Hook I/9 5.5 mm, I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn approx. 4 skeins of the variegated (5 oz) and 3 skeins of the solid (7 oz). A yarn needle for sewing in the ends and sewing the blocks together.
The squares are 12 inches, you will make 30 squares and 9 rounds per square. These squares are worked like a regular granny square but you will be turning and changing colors
Stitches Used: Slip St (sl st), chain (ch), Double Crochet (dc) Half Double Crochet (hdc)
Gauge: 10 dc = 3 in wide, 2 rows = 1.5 in
With the solid color ch 4, sl to together to form a ring
Rnd 1 Ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout) dc 2 times into the ring, ch 2, dc 3 times into ring, change to variegated yarn and ch 2, (leave tail of solid color behind to use later) 3 dc into ring, ch 2, 3 dc, hdc into top of ch 3
Rnd 2 Turn ch 3, in hdc space 2 dc, ch 1 and in corner 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1 and in next corner 3 dc, change color by picking up the solid and ch 2, 3 dc in same space, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in next corner, hdc in top of ch 3
Rnd 3 Turn ch 3, 2 dc in hdc space, ch 1, in next ch 1 space 3 dc, ch 1, in corner 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 space, ch 1, in corner 3 dc pick up the variegated color, ch 2, 3 dc in same space, continue around till the beginning and hdc into top of ch 3
Rnd 4 – 9 Keep repeating rnd 3 and in each ch 1 space you will be doing 3 dc, When you get to the end of rnd 9 instead of doing the hdc ch 2 and sl st into the top of ch 3 and fasten off. Weave in all ends.
Once you get all 30 squares done you will need to sew them together according to the graph in any way you want to. I used a yarn needle and ran the yarn through both back loops.
