Granny Squares

Good day all. Hope everyone has had a crafty winter. Spring is here, well it’s supposed to be, although it doesn’t look like it with all the mounds of slushy snow and cold temperatures here in Alberta.   No wonder I had the urge to crochet a couple of throws, one right after the other :). This one is made up of 2 sizes of granny squares.

Using a medium weight yarn, I worked 3 rounds on the small squares and 7 rounds on the large squares. Knowing now I would have worked 6 rounds on the large ones. Patterns are just a guide line when it comes to granny squares for me. sometimes my work is tight and somedays I crochet a little loose. All in all I am happy in the results. I had plenty of yarn to work 4 rows around the edge of the throw.
