Southwest Granny Square Blanket Crochet Along

February 14, 2018

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my Southwest Granny Square Blanket Crochet Along!

What is a crochet along?

A crochet along is when we all work on the same pattern at the same time. The pattern will be posted in parts, with each part being posted on Mondays. This crochet along will start next Monday on February 26th and last for 14 weeks. I will release 12 squares a week (the squares will take 12 weeks), then one week for sewing the squares together and the last week for weaving in ends and the border.

The blanket consists of solid granny squares and triangle half granny squares like this:

There will be a photo tutorial included for the triangle half granny squares. And of course, you can always send me questions.

If you prefer to have the entire pattern at once, I will have the PDF available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

I used Red Heart Soft Essentials, which is a bulky category 5 yarn. But to me it’s not really all that bulky. If you wanted to use something different I think a category 4 yarn would work out perfectly.

Red Heart Soft Essentials in Cream 12 skeins (approx 1,472 yds)
Red Heart Soft Essentials in Navy 4 skeins (approx 524 yds)
Red Heart Soft Essentials in Peony 3 skeins (approx  393 yds)
Red Heart Soft Essentials in Minty 2 skeins (approx 262 yds)
6.0 mm hook
Yarn needle

Blocking board (or whatever technique you like to use for blocking)

  1. When independent dyers dye the yarn it comes to them in skeins and is dyed and dried in the skein. Most dyers kept it in the skein because winding it into a ball would raise the cost of producing the yarn. Now some big yarn companies sell yarn in the skein too as it gives it an artisan image and a feeling of prestige to the yarn. In the UK skein and hank are used fairly interchangeably but in the US a skein can also mean an elongated ball of yarn that has a centre pull. Now we know what we are dealing with, lets get that baby wound and ready to knit or crochet from! The first thing you need  to do is prepare the skein for winding. Gently open out the skein by untwisting it.
