The Finished Granny Square Throw

Jan 22, 2011

Wool Granny Square Throw

In typical fashion, I started a project last fall, asked for your help making decisions about it, ignored your advice, and let it languish in a corner for nearly a year before finally weaving in the ends and giving it to its intended recipients.

And I love it. And so do my in-laws, who now keep it on their sofa. Phew.

I used Tahki Montana yarn and a 10mm hook (more details on Ravelry), and I turned the piece at the beginning of each round so there's no right or wrong side. (ETA: It's about 48" square.) Aside from weaving in the ends, it only took me a week or two to crochet. And now I kinda want to discover another 800 yards of super bulky yarn in my stash so I can make another.

Oops! Thanks for reminding me to list the size, Amy! I updated the post. It's about 48" square.

I, too, love your large granny square throw.  I have enough yarn to make this.  It said it was a personal pattern of yours.  Did you just make it up or where can I purchase it.

I have a new grandbaby and would be great to make for him.

Thanks, neyr. It's a regular granny square. I just kept going. So no need for a pattern!

That is a great looking throw, I always find myself laying down and wishing they were bigger to use as a blanket!

Love the colours. I haven't really done that many Granny Squares before, can you mix different types of yarn in the same square? I have a drawer full of yarn to use up and I think I would enjoy this more than a bunch of little squares.

@crochetedflowerpatch - You sure can. The only thing to keep in mind is that all the yarns you use are pretty much the same weight (you can hold thinner yarns together to make them heavier weight).

I have done this in both bulky and worsted weight yarns.  I plan to make more to use up stash.  I will give some as gifts and others for charity.  Love the colors in ths one!
