You might remember this post from early August when I wrote about joining in the Granny Square Sampler Along at Wisecraft since I was going to be away from my sewing machine for two weeks.
I thought this was going to be a very long term project but then the sewing machine drama began and since I was without a sewing machine again, I spent all my "free" time working on the blanket and now less than 2 months later it is complete!
It is a bizarre size and I doubt any of the four sides are even but I love it.
I decided to use a combination of crochet stitches to attach the squares together treating it like an improv quilt.
I started by arranging all the squares on the floor and taking a photo. Then, using either single crochet or the crochet stitch that I don't know the name of where you alternate single crochet and half double crochet in the same row (anyone?), I would take a square and build it up until it was the size of the one next to it. I would then attach those two squares using a single crochet stitch and then build up that section until it was the same size (meaning number of stitches) as another section and attach those two with single crochet, etc., etc., etc. - does that make any sense at all?
