Giant Granny Squares

When I last posted I was thinking about what I wanted to do for the centre of this blanket so I thought today I'd show you what I decided. I've gone for 3 half size granny squares in the middle which gives me a gap of 1.5 big granny squares or 3 half granny squares wide

As you can see I am now filling that gap with the same pattern that I have elsewhere in the blanket, 2 rows of each colour and shading from white through to purple

The next colour will be pink and then purple. After that I'm thinking of going back the other way, so it goes pink, purple, pink, red, orange etc. I'm not sure what I want to do for the border yet. Mr Soaring Sheep suggested lots of little granny squares but I'm not sure if I fancy dealing with that many ends! Might have a look through my crochet borders book for inspiration instead.

  5. What great colours. They are very funky, and remind me of the 1970's.
