Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The instructions look fairly easy to follow. I like the fact there are instructions to join them together as well. The one thing I don't like is how many motifs you have to make. 180 in all. It would have to be done over time but it is a good way to use up all that left over yarn. It has to be coordinated though. I would have to map it out. Good way to learn how to crochet a motif. Thank you for the pattern.

. I love granny squares and tend to look and make projects that use motifs. I never thought about using my scrap to make granny squares. So now, at the end of any project I can just make granny squares construct an afghan or larger blanket when I compile enough squares. Thanks for the idea.

This scrapghan is so very colorful. There are two granny square pattern choices you can make this blanket out of or you could mix and match a combination of both the thick and thinner squares. Not sure why it is not rated as a beginner project unless it is because of the labor intensive sewing of the squares together and changing yarn so often.

This Crochet Granny Scrapghan is such a great idea to use up any yarn left over from a project. Although I always have a little left over, I feel like this pattern would never be complete. However, this would be a great backup project and will make a unique gift when complete.

A Scrapghan, lol! Such a great idea and very pretty too. In the next few days I will be diving into my enormous collection of leftovers and scraps to find the right colours for our family room. Everyone in the family loves to snuggle under an afghan when watching a movie or TV. The only exception is in the hottest weather. I like that it is an easy pattern because I love to crochet while watching TV so the less concentration needed on the pattern the happier I am.

What do you think?http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=WUPlv9jTq4o

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiFnxsWtZiI There are many tutorials on youtube.com to help with putting the squares together. That link is my favorite. There has to be a side with ridges which is what we see in the picture... the other side is flat. It is a beautiful granny square afghan. I saved the pattern!

I'd like to ask the previous commenter how they would recommend sewing the blocks together. If you have a tutorial somewhere, I'd like to see it.

this is a great idea BUT...the sewing together of the blocks is horrendous! It should lay flat...a ridge like the pattern picture shows. I have been making Granny Square afghans for years (taught by my grandmother) & this is Definitely wrong! (not to mention sloppy!)
