I picked the granny square just to use up this yarn. Now that it's done I absolutely love it!
You know that my goal was to use ALL of this yarn. I wanted a border so I estimated when I needed to stop and start doing the border. I figured that I had enough yarn to do a half double crochet. But I came up short about 20" of yarn! It's jsut like quilting when the bobbin thread runs out on the last row of quilting.
The good thing about crochet is that ripping out stitches takes about 5 seconds so I pulled out the border row.
I did a single crochet instead. (The colors in this photo are horrible.)
I used this Youtube Tutorial to make the blanket with 3 balls of Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle yarn. I only had a little bit of yarn left over and I allowed myself to toss it out. The colors of the yarn are most accurate in this photo.
It finished about 32" square. This is my 3rd crochet blanket and I'm already planning the next one.
I'm also working on penguins and coasters and studio cleaning.
