The blanket is made up of granny squares in various combinations of red, off-white, hunter green, and chocolate brown. These colours were (for the most part) chosen by the bride.
All wool was RedHeart brand, purchased at good ole Walmart (because budgeting my hobbies is important).
The blanket began to take shape as I layed the squares on the floor. Each granny square was 8 rows, with chocolate brown in the middle and on the outside.
I attached the squares with a simple single crochet stitch going vertical first, and then horizontal. I finished the outside by single crochet stitching the white around the perimeter of the blanket, and then shell stitching around that to add a scallop.
What have you been working on? I love to look at other crocheter's projects.
