Granny Square Sampler
Created By: Carla Meisel
Craft: crochet
Materials: Vanna's Choice yarn as indicated on pattern directions
Pattern Source: other: Free Lion Brand Pattern

I just finished this project. Although I think the finished product is appealing, I wanted to comment on the mistakes in the pattern's instructions. First, the pattern lists colors A-O. Under the "color sequence" section, each motif instruction asks to use four of these colors. I found that two of the motifs wanted color "P". When I purchased the yarn I bought indicated colors A-O. Color "P" was a total mystery. I had to do a little investigating to figure out exactly what "P" was. Turns out the pattern completely skips the color Navy; therefore, I substituted Navy when "P" was needed. Second, The picture for this blanket doesn't seem to have navy in it. Most of the blanket is a light baby blue, more pastel. My finished product was much more bold. I bought exactly what was asked: Vanna's Choice color's indicated. Third, adjustments were mandatory to see that the motifs would match up and sew together appropriately. The first reviewer on this blanket discusses the same matter.
This pattern is nice for a male or female baby. I was worried that it wasn't going to turn out as nicely as it did. I did use all navy yarn to sew the motifs together. If you are a perfectionist, you might not consider this pattern. Too much guess work involved and the finished product doesn't make for the neatest edges. Otherwise, it is a unique gift and fairly quick to make.
