Giant Granny Quilt Along - 50 rounds

I've just completed 50 rounds on my Giant Granny Square blanket.  There are quite a few of us that have joined the crochet along over at Sucrette's blog. 


I plan to keep going on this blanket even though it is fairly large right now.  In the next photo you can see how large it is compared to the size of the chair.  It would already be a cozy wrap at this size.  But there is still yarn left, so I will add a few more rounds.  Those of you that know me are laughing because you know I always have a good stash of yarn!!!

I'm going to try to come up with a pattern, chart or tutorial that will show how you do a granny square for those that want to make either this blanket or smaller granny squares.  I'll post that over on my crochet blog soon. 

  I hope you are having a good week and finding some time to stitch. 

Thanks for visiting!

LuAnn! What a great thing! I love it. You must just smile every time you look at it. How large do you think it will be when you stop??

I love these large Granny Squares. A what a great way to use up some partial skeins of yarn. When you make one this large do you, at any point, need more than a skein to get around the whole thing? I haven't crocheted in so long I have no concept of how much yarn this uses.
