Traditional Granny Blanket

Lion Brand® Microspun

GAUGE:

Each square approx 3 in x 3 in [7.5cm x 7.5cm] using size E/4 (3.50mm) crochet hook. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Traditional Granny Blanket Reviewed by Cheri on 2014-05-18 ****
This took a lot of time, but I'm happy with how it turned out. I did have to find a good way to connect the squares and I changed the edging a bit. Will probably make another one in different colors - just wish I'd taken better notes of the finishing steps!
