I started and shared this large granny square crochet blanket awhile back but I recently enlarged it and added the edging to complete it.

Basically I crocheted a large granny square, close to the width I wanted for the blanket.

Then I added some rows of double crochet on opposite ends to turn the square into a rectangle.

From there I did more granny stitching around the entire piece to make the blanket a little bigger and give it a more cohesive look.

Then I added a thicker yarn (Lion Brand Homespun) to make the edging.

For that edging I did one row of double crochet and then one row of HDC in BLO.

I’m happy with the final results.

A lot of this was scrap yarn so it was a good stash buster project for my closet!
