I pretty much always have a large crochet granny square blanket on my hooks lately. The one I worked on most recently was one that I really enjoyed because I decided to use a bunch of yarn favorites that I’d been saving for quite some time. The yarns are all blues in fingering weight. Most of them are merino wool.
The crochet blanket started as a granny square and then continued with the same pattern but with two sides using sc instead of dc stitches to make a rectangle instead of a square. (So the first row of a round was dc traditional granny stitch, the next side was granny stitch using sc instead, then dc and then closing off the round with another sc row).
I started off with the Ocean Waves yarn that I got from Iria Yarn Co. It’s a 100% superwash merino yarn.
Then I used Colinette’s Jitterbug in Salty Dog colorway, a 100% merino yarn.
Next up was a Knit Picks denim colored yarn, also 100% merino.
Then came Sincere Sheep’s Tenacious fingering yarn, a 100% superwash merino in the Anja blue colorway.
And then a skein from Chamomile Connection called Panda that’s a blend of 46% bamboo, 43% wool and 11% nylon.
