I first dreamt up the idea of having a blanket for myself around Christmas, and when we went away for a few days I took yarn with me to start making the squares. It was then put aside to make customer orders and presents. It was a joy to pick it up between other projects, and finishing it was a delight! This is easily my favourite make ever!
I used my go-to granny square tutorial, this one by The Patchwork Heart, as I love how straight they make the squares. I used the join-as-you method to join the squares. There is a great tutorial for the method here.
The edging is very simple. In each space there is a DC (SC), and three chains between. On the 3ch, I made a V-Stitch. In the corners I made a shell, consisting of 10TR (10DC).
