“Grandma and me” blanket

Good morning!

How are you today? Many many thanks for you all who are visiting “le monde de Sucrette”! It is such a pleasure having you here :)

and because many of you asked about the blanket I crocheted with my grandma (you can read about this blanket in this post) and especially Nicolette who asked for the pattern I tried this morning to make a graphic one very easy to follow :)

So dear Nicolette your wish is my command :) hehe

This is for you some pics of the blanket and the graphic pattern of its square ….

The square is made with 7 rounds…The first and the last round crocheted in white and rounds 2,3,4,5and 6 with one color….

In the graphic pattern above I draw the first 3 rounds…

For round 4,5,6 and 7 it is the same principle as round 2 or 3…You have to crochet 1 treble above every treble of the previous round and in the corner you crochet every time: ” 2tr, 1chain, 2tr ”

It is very easy when you try it :) You’ll see ;)

And when all your squares are done…you align them and join them with a dc chain (maille serree in french)

I crocheted the joining-dc chain every time with a different color ;)

Hope this helped you !

Have a beautiful and springy week end!

    Dear Sucrette,

    Many, many thanks for the pattern. I start within an hour (after I took my girls to school).

    I’m going to ask my mother to join me with this project. So the blanket will be finished quicker and later my girls will have a momentum of their grandmother.

    Again, thank you.
    Have a sunny weekend,
    Nicollette

    My grandmother crocheted too. I am self taught–about 3 years now. There have been so many times I wished that she was still around. I often think it would have been so lovely to crochet together. Lucky you for doing this project with your grandma. What a wonderful way to spend time together!

    This is a lovely blanket and easy too. I am a self taught crocheter. Can you please elaborate how to do the joining-dc chain method.
    Thanking you.

  15. how many chains or stitches do you make to start?

  16. Andria Warner says:

    I just found this. It’s beautiful. I definitely want to make one. In the directions you say join squares with an “dc chain”. Can you explain what that means? Thanks.

  17. Evelyn says:

    Hi, in the smaller version of this block that is a solid (the picture of all the blankets folded); can you tell me how you put them together so there is no color showing between them? I would like to make one of these. All bright colors of course!!! Makes me happy!

    Thanks for your reply.

  18. Elle says:

    Hi there! I just started something very similar, but I’m curious about the size you made this work. I’m working on an oversized king size blanket, and my calculations have me making nearly 200 squares. Do you think this is right, or am I just going nuts over here, lol.
    Any input is appreciated! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. I always love the idea of granny squares, but not how ‘holey’ they are. This is JUST what I was looking for!

    Yeslamu 2ydeyky Sucrette! It is stunning, I just stumbled across your webpage from Attic24. I am totally in love with your work, alf mabrook on your new addition, totally happy to have found your website and thanks for sharing your work and passion with us.xx

  20. [...] For the squares I am using this classic pattern but with a small change: I am making 2tr,2ch,2tr in each corner instead of 2tr,1ch,2tr like on the [...]

    I am making this afghan as a high school graduation gift for my niece. Am doing ok with the squares but could you clarify what “joining with dc chain in different colors” means? Thanks so much.
