Granny Square Throw


This Granny Square Throw is easy to crochet and makes a great decorative piece for any room of your home. Not only does it feature beautiful shades of blues and an appealing design, but it's the perfect size for the kids to share, too! Just 12 balls of Bernat Satin are used to work up this stunning crochet afghan pattern, making this a design that won't break the bank. Granny squares are crocheted individually and then joined together to create this pretty blanket, so you can work on it, little by little, anywhere you please.

This Granny Square Throw has me thinking of a beautiful stained glass window and I love that the black yarn, although bordering every square, nonetheless seems quite understated. It is a very nice pattern indeed, thank you for sharing it so freely. Whatever colors one makes chooses it will be beautiful

Personally, my favorite color to use for edging on a granny square is black. It adds such dimension. I made a queen sized granny square blanket and it took me well over a year to finish it. The time it took was well worth it. I also crochet my squares together and do not sew them. If you like a challenge,I say go for it.

My D-I-L has everything in their home black, white or grey. So, I made this granny Square afghan in her colors. Boy, I'm getting old! I had a heck of time seeing the black stitches. But, it turned out beautiful. These are pics of this afghan, and I am pleased at how good it turned out! A LOT of sewing!

I think the black border makes perfect sense. It makes the other colors stand out. I am making one now with gemstone and black border.....very pretty.

Hi, katzdu4 1871934. Perhaps many people find that black sets off the squares best, allowing the colors and patterns to pop. You could certainly substitute the black for any color of your choice!

I love it but I don't understand why everyone uses black as an outline. Is that traditional? Seems like it would be hard on the eyes.

I do believe it is tradition. It makes the colors pop that you use of corse you can also use dark blue.For a more plain tone. I also have seen one that was done in dark brown with the colors of autum leaves. It was very pretty.

Black or any dark colour is hard on the eyes,specially if you are crochetting or knitting at night. It is best to work with dark colours in the daylight with a light behind your shoulder or near a window.You can also put a light coloured nail polish on your fingernails.This also works for some people when using dark yarn. Also,you can outline in whatever colour you prefer. I hope this little post helps ....
