I tried to queue this up to post at my normal 2pm time, but I couldn’t get wordpress to log me in! It kept telling me the password was wrong, so, I go ahead and change it…only to be told I can’t change it to what I want because that password was “recently used.” Ugh. Anyway, back up and running now!
This project was both the bane of my existence and a glorious success that I love. I despise granny squares. I hate weaving in ends. I hate sewing them together. It is so pretty, but I hate all the effort that must go into them. But, when my friend took on a new foster daughter right before both her 3rd birthday and Christmas, I knew it had to happen. This little girl happens to be Frozen obsessed and the lovely Sarah of RepeatCrafterMe caters to Disney loving babes.
So, following her super simple snowflake granny square pattern, I was able to put together this amazing blanket in just over a week. Now, I imagine those with more than an hour or so a day to dedicate to crocheting could do this faster, but hey, I am a busy lady over here.
I made 49 squares, and the full picture is it lying on the center of my king sized bed. I joined with a single crochet through just one loop for each square, so that the white made a nice ribbing on the front, and a lightly visible connection on the back (see last photo). I used my standard J hook, and worsted weight yarn, more specifically, Lion Brand’s I Love This Yarn.
Sarah, again, knocked it out of the park with this pattern. It is really easy to follow, the squares work up quickly, and the snowflakes would be awesome stand-alone as decorations too!
