I have started a bigger project using granny squares, I think its easier in the warmer months to have something smaller. A blanket using just 3 colours, I might add another colour in the border but that's a long way off yet. I have done 24 squares so far but I will need 144, so I don't need to decide right now.
The yarn is a Windermere wool rich aran which I really enjoy crocheting with, I am not using a pattern it is a bog standard granny square. I do however work out the colours and quantities of squares prior to starting using a very old fashioned method - pen and paper.chrissiecrafts.blogspot.co.uk/ and Marianneladybirddiaries.blogspot.co.uk/
