Here are some technical infos for you between the pics:

* Yarn: Mirage (a 100% acrylic yarn). I don’t know exactly how much yarn I used because I used mostly scraps and 3 balls of 100g of white. I think it is a total of 10 balls of 100g each or maybe a little bit less…

* Hook: 3.5mm

* Square: A 6 rounds (the last one in white) traditional granny square. You can find its graphic HERE!

* Joining: I joined my squares with the last white round as-I-go. You can find more about this joining method in Lucy’s wonderful blog HERE!

* Dimensions: Appr. 240×100 cm with a total of 128 squares

* Edging: Clusters of 3dc (as for the square) but with a picot between the clusters instead of 1 chain. (To make the picots, I crochet 3chain and then 1 sc in the first chain). I love this simple edging and keep using it :)

This blanket is making me very happy. It transformed our room making it fresher and warmer at the same time :) I love that every time I enter our room I have a smile on my face :)

Crochet, my dear friend, is magical :)

I hope that you enjoyed these 10 pics of my latest blanket …

Sending you all my love through this post!

Take care

  6. Morning, delightful person ! I so wish I knew you personally.
    Your grannie squares blanket is absolutely out of this world beautiful!
    Bon, bon, bon !
    Your blog always delights me. Your photos are lovely and just inspire me to crochet and be creative. It lifts my heart.
    I live in Cape Town in South Africa.
    You must be French! My granddaughter and her husband and two babies live in Grenoble and I simply love it there when I go visiting.
    So I am a great-grannie and so proud ! I am 78, but still going strong. I have a daughter with 3 daughters and three babies each of my daughter’s daughters! They live in California and I hop on a plane and visit them regularly. My son is a plastic surgeon here in Cape Town and my youngest son has a business. Although my husband died in 2011 and I miss him so, I am a blessed woman in so many ways.
    Please send me a note, my dear!
    Kindest regards, Berna. bernastruwig@gmail.com

    Angie-
    Your afghan does make me smile too. I have been planning on making a granny square afghan outlined in white like yours for a long time. This maybe the motivation I need to get started on mine. Thanks so much for sharing your excellent work. :).
