I know I diss on the granny square a lot... but sometimes a crocheter just has to make one, a really big one... and that's what this blanked it, one HUGE granny square (make it as big as you like)!
Here is what you will need...
-Worsted weight yarn in a few fun colors - I'm using black, white, red, yellow, and mint
-Scissors? that's pretty much it...
Chain 6. Join in a small loop with a sl st.
Row 1: Ch 2. *3 dc into the center of the ch-6 loop. Ch 2. Repeat from * 3 more times. Join with sl st.
Row 2: Ch 2. *Ch 2 and skip the 3 dc of previous row. (3 dc, ch 2, 3dc) in the ch-2 space of previous row. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st.
Row 3: Ch 2. *3 dc in the ch-2 space of previous row. Ch 2 and skip the 3 dc of previous row. When you reach the corner, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) into the ch-2 space in the corner of the previous row. Repeat from * around.
Continue in this way for each row. Ch 2 over the 3 dc of previous row and 3 dc into the ch-2 spaces of previous rows, each time you reach a corner making a (3dc, ch 2, 3 dc) into the corner ch-2 space.
I made 10 rows in white, 5 rows of black, 5 rows of white, 5 rows of black, 5 rows of white, 5 rows of red, 5 rows of blue, 5 rows of yellow, 5 rows of white... and my blanket is HUGE!!!
You can make yours far smaller if you like!
