DIY Crochet blanket

noname-2

After four weeks of crochet works my blanket out of granny squares is finally finished. It will be perfect during these cold autumn days.

This is how you do it: You can make the squares individually and then stitch them together.

First you have to decide what kind of yarn or wool you want to use and then how big your blanket is going to be. I used alpaca wool, a 0,7 needle and made every square 10x10cm. The blanket is 120x100cm so I needed 120 granny squares.

When you have made the squares you crochet them together (you could also sew them but I think this looks nicer) and then crochet a border around the whole blanket. If you want to make a blanket using multiple colors you can read more about it here.

Here is a short guide on how I made my classic granny squares

Foundation Ring: ch6 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: ch3, 2dc, ch2 (working into ring). Then work (3dc, ch2) into ring. Repeat two more times. Join the last stitch to the beginning of the round with a slip stitch in the top of the first ch3. You should have four clusters of stitches.

Round 2: Starting where you ended on the last round slip stitch into the space made by the ch2 in the last row. Work (ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc) into this space. Skip to the next gap and work (3dc, ch2,3dc) into this space. Repeat twice more. Join the last stitch to the beginning of the round with a slip stitch in the top of the first ch3. You should have 8 clusters all together.

Round 3: Starting where you ended on Round 2, slip stitch into the space created by ch2 in the previous row Ch3, 2dc into this space. Skip to the next gap and work (3dc, ch2, 3dc) into the space, then skip to the next gap and work 3dc into that space. Repeat two more times. Skip to next gap and work (3dc, ch2, 3dc) into remaining space. Join the last stitch to the beginning of the roud in top of the first ch3. You should have 12 clusters now.

Keep going like this and add increase the number of clusters on each side as you go until your square is the size you want.
