Crocheted Granny Square Throw

I needed a break from the knitting so I dug out all the squares I did last year to complete this throw.

It’s cherry red, grey, and powder blue with a black border.

Still haven’t finished it yet…

Finished!

Shrug and hat

I made several of these shrugs, in various colours, for a number of people. A big needle, thick yarn and made up in just a couple of days. The hat was a failure that I think I rescued by adding a shell stitch to match the shrug.

Learning to crochet

I learned to crochet from my mum so I decided that as the children were showing some interest in my production of granny squares, and as those squares were intended to be made into blankets for them, I should teach them.

Enthusiasm was varied.

And some weren’t interested at all.

Others just didn’t take it seriously…
