FO Friday: Great Granny!

Furlough Day 11. Sigh. But the baby blanket is done.

Great Granny 4

Yes, it’s a giant granny square. And it was such fun to crochet that I intend to make several more out of the remaining skeins of acrylic, thus creating a backstock of baby blankets to be used as needed, or possibly donated to Project Linus or some other such organization.

Great Granny 7Pattern: Great Granny from Crochet Today July/August 2010
Hook: Size H (5.0 mm)
Yarn: Multiple skeins of acrylic (Patons Canadiana and Bernat Berella), 1090 yards total. Click this link to go to the project page on Ravelry.
Satisfaction with end product: Very pleased. The color combination worked out well, and it’s suitable for either a boy or a girl. And, as always after washing and drying, the acrylic is soft and cushiony. Don’t ever let anyone tell you acrylic is scratchy and uncomfortable. Well, maybe some acrylics. But seriously, even Red Heart Super Saver softens up after a good hot wash and dry.

  1. I loooooved me some Red Heart and a good granny square back in my crocheting days. My last crochet project was a blanket for my husband and I made it with Red Heart and it’s the softest thing ever now. That stuff gets a bad reputation it doesn’t deserve.
