Granny Square Blanket
Created By: Wendy K Hettinger
Craft: crochet
Materials: I used all Vanna's Choice yarn for this project. 4 solid colors and 4 mist colors to match. I didn't keep the labels so I can't say exactly what colors, but the mist ones are the colors with the white blended in and those are easy to find. I just looked it up: Denim Mist, Rose Mist, Purple Mist, Seaspray Mist. 1 of each. Solid colors: Antique Rose, Purple, Kelly Green, Sapphire. 1 of each. 3-4 White for borders and connecting. I used a 6 mm hook for the enitre project. I started off by making squares with 5 rows of the base color, then 2 rows of white, then 1 row of the opposite color, (if base was Denim Mist, then this row was Sapphire. I did this for all squares.) then, last row was white again. I did 2 of each squares, so the total number was 16. After I connected them, I put 2 border rows around entire blanket.
Pattern Source: lionbrand:

I made 16 squares in total. 8 of them are solid colors (blue, green, purple, and rose) and 8 are the mist colors ( same but mist) and I connected them with white. It was honestly my first attempt at an entire Granny blanket and I love the outcome. I plan on giving this to my niece for Christmas. With my day to day schedule, it only took me about 2 weeks to complete and making the squares took the longest time. I connected each square with the SC stitch and honestly, the line on the back isn't that bad at all.
