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!
