This project started out as a way to use up scraps of wool. This is why some of the squares are striped, some have borders… and no two are identical!
I intended to crochet 64 squares to make an 8×8 blanket… but I ran short of patience! I desperately wanted to be finished before the cold snap, so 49 squares sufficed. 7×7 is still a pretty decent size!
That stripy square in the middle is my favourite!
I can’t believe how warm these blankets are, despite many of the squares being end-of-ball polyester wools. They really trap the heat in and create a cosy cocoon around the body.
I will no doubt be getting a lot of use from this baby before winter breaks!
