A crafty crew are joining me in making an Easy Peasy Blanket at the moment, as a sort of salve to these stressful days.
Basically this blanket is a bunch of very large granny squares in just three colours … joined together a bit further down the track (or as you go, if you like!)
Hook – any size. I am using 3.5mm.
Yarn – whatever you like. I am using up my stash of pastel and bright acrylic’s bought at various places such as Spotlight and Lincraft. And also some Stylecraft yarn.
- In your first colour crochet an 8 round granny square.
- In your second colour crochet 3 rounds.
- In your third colour crochet 3 rounds.
- Fasten off and move on to the next square!
There are very few ends to deal with because we only change colour 3 times. And it’s a brilliant no-brainer project that works up pretty quickly.
I’m going to join mine once they are all done, by crocheting a border on each one and using the join as you go method. But you could sew them together or use any method you like.
Speaking of joining, perhaps you want to join in too?
Some people (me included) are sharing their work on social media. The hashtag we’re using (if you want to do that, no pressure!) is #EPBlanket.
Let’s do this!! It could be something lovely to focus on during these strange days.
