Hello, here you can find all the patterns to make a bright and colourful Granny Square blanket. This was run as a crochet a-long – but there is nothing to stop you grabbing a hook and making a great colourful blanket now.
If you need a lesson in how to make a granny square check out my absolute beginners guide here>>>
Yarn wise – this is a great stash buster – you’ll need about 1 ball of each colour, and 2 for the joining.
On to the original post – which was written the week the UK went into Lockdown with Covid 19 – March 2020.
Well what a week that was for the world.
Life is pretty strange here in the UK right now as we are on lockdown to stop the spread of the virus.
No leaving the house = more time to crochet (yay….. but not when trying to home school 2 different kids doing 2 totally different things).
Only allowed out once a day for exercise – my dogs are enjoying it, as I tend to do one walk and Mr OTH one later in the day.
So when I actually wanted distraction in mindless Crochet, I didn’t really have it as I’ve been busy learning about “Fronted Adverbials”, Mean, Mode and Median, Ancient Greece athletes, and Repeating patterns to name just a few things.
So crochet has been on the back burner a little here.
I’ve been working on some projects, but these are all top secret for a few more months (You know what that means 🙂 )
So finally on Friday afternoon at 4pm (School is closed) there is time for me to sit and type some #nobrainer crochet.
If you want to save this for later – please Pin it below.
If you’ve joined me late, don’t worry – you’ve got plenty of time to catch up.
If you need to know about the colours and the yarn I’ve used. You head over to this post here – it tells you about how much you need and what colours.
Then if you need to catch up completely – I’ve got a handy menu here with all the posts saved in one place.
So without further ado………….
