Granny Sampler Blanket Reviewed by Theresa Ball on 2011-08-21 *****
the squares are easy, but I also switched to a smaller directions for joining..but since my squares are smaller I added a border. I printed out all directions with the colors that I bought because the color scheme pattern was not easy to follow. all in all a very nice project if you have crocheted before..a beginner may have problems because ther are no joining directions..colors are hard to figure out and a smaller needle makes a much better square especially the popcorn square.

This pattern turned out...okay. I bought the kit so it included all the colors shown. I also substituted some squares because 3 patterns was not a good "sampler". As a result I had to buy extra yarn to join and add a border. All in all - not my favorite granny pattern.

I like how this blanket is going, however I was confused because my squares looked differnt. When I zoomed into the picture I realized it is actually showing the backside of the blanket. That explains why I couldn't see the popcorn stitches!

The colors in the pattern do not match the colors shown in the picture. Color "I" was left out and a mysterious color "P" was in the pattern. But I figured out the colors from the picture. I also joined the squares using Denim Mist and made a border. Love it!

My family is Swedish, so rather than making this with the colors that were called for, I made it with blue and yellow, as the Swedish flag. I also added a row of double crochet around each square making them more even to put together, then crocheted them together with a single crochet As a beginning crocheter, this was not hard at all and with changing the colors you can do lots of different designs.

I adjusted this pattern quite a bit. I was planning on making the 8-color afghan, but I didn't find the pattern large enough or interesting enough. So I redesigned this pattern to suit eight colors. Each motif has six distinct color sequences that do not repeat over any other motif. I also adjusted the grid pattern so that even though the motifs have a regular repeating pattern, the color sequences do not. Essentially, I'm trying to make it as hodge podge as I can, because Vanna's Choice yarns are just so interesting together. I'll post some pictures when I'm finished.

I chose this pattern for its simplicity and as a learning tool to get back into crocheting. I finished the squares with no problem, but was stumped at connecting the squares. I am very interested in how others connect the squares with all the multiple colors

I made one of each motif of this pattern and while I did like each one and also the concept of using several motifs in the same afghan, I had to made adjustments to each motif pattern so that the finished squares more approximate the same size. Now that they do, I am eager to make more!! I am also very interested in reading comments from other's about their results! Karen E.
