Retro Granny Square Blanket!!!


It is finished!!  There's something so satisfying about finishing a large crochet project... this one started over the summer holidays.


This granny square blanket was originally named "The Ugly Blanket" but after your encouragement here, it was renamed "The Retro Caravan Blanket" (or The Retro Blanket for short).

For some reason I keep thinking of the old TV test pattern.


Now all I need is a retro caravan to go with my blanket.


Amazing what you can make out of your wool scraps isn't it!!

Woohoo, I've finished it!

    I'm making a similar retro granny square blanket. Still looking for extra colors. I think I'm going to add that extra black round on all the squares and all around the blanket.
