As part of my Yellow Belt crochet training – I’ve been working to learn and perfect the Granny Square. With a few not so great squares, but some other beauties – I felt that it was time to finish what I had done. Not entirely happy with my joining technique (it’s all about the colour!) – I decided that a simple edging would help save this half blanket / half center piece.
The best (and easiest) option I could find was this Shell Border – which just involves more Double Crochet – but scrunched up to create the shell effect.
Overall – I was quite pleased with the finished product:
The only issue was that once completed it made the blanket curl up at the edges a bit too much. Perhaps next time I’ll try 4 stitches in each space rather than 5.
But overall I’m pretty chuffed with my first completed Granny Square project – and it now sits proudly on our bookshelf:
Robot Rating: 7.5 / 10 (Would have been an 8 if it wasn’t for the curling)
