Progress

I have been working on my throw rug over Easter and now have a grand total of eight blocks of nine (72) granny squares all joined together. At first I wasn't quite sure how I was going to join them, but decided I would use a neutral colour to crochet join them rather than sewing them together.


I like how it creates a raised seam and contrasts nicely with all the earthy tones.


I'm thinking now I have seen these done, I may not have to make as many granny squares if I crochet a boarder around these blocks. What do you think?

  1. Such hard work, I quite like the raised seam and I can't wait to see the final result!

    1. Thank you Alejandra, I think it does too. It's a bit of an experiment and has been a fun way to reduce my stash and put it to good use.

    1. Thanks Alasse,
      Not really, I just haven't been doing much of anything else. LOL! The colours were what I had in my box, so you could say the colours chose me.

  5. WOW you have been busy and what a nice job you've done of these too. I think the raised border works really well and sets off the darker colours of the actual granny squares. I really do like what you've done and hope you'll show us when it's all sewn together into a big throw.

    1. Thanks Sharon. I think so too, lots of people join their squares on the reverse side, but I like it as a feature on the front. Still have a few more sqares to crochet, but making them into blocks makes iit easier to layout the design. Yes, I will post a photo when it's finished.

    1. Oh I don't do a lot Farrah, but I needed to use up my odd balls of wool on something and with winter on it's way this will be comforting on chilly nights. :) Thanks so much for the compliments, coming from another crocheter that makes it all worthwhile.
