Granny Pinwheel Blanket
"Modern look for a classic granny square blanket. This blanket consists of 48 granny squares joined together with a mattress stitch and assembled with one row of half double crochet. You can easily adjust blanket size according to your preferences and make it as big or small as you’d like. The pattern for one 3-color square might seem complex at first sight,that’s why I’ve created a step-by-step picture tutorial. Make your own Granny Pinwheel Blanket and increase the beauty of your home decor."
NotesBlanket is joined using a Mattress Stitch and later framed with a half double crochet.
If you are planning on making a different size keep in mind that cotton blankets tend to get heavy. You can use any type of yarn for that pattern.
