I spotted this gorgeous throw blanket made by TOAST via pinterest and wondered if I could make something similar but maybe in a slightly different colour, white tends to stain spontaneously around me.
I'm making the blanket with large 10 round not-granny squares, this is my name for them anyway. I'm using a chunky yarn and a 7mm hook and I didn't want to do traditional granny squares as I thought the holes would be too big and I want this to be a super cosy blanket for my lovely friends who has recently got married and bought their first house. I had a couple of false starts getting the number of stitches correct, (I'd missed a stitch per side for about 8 rounds and had to rip it all out and start again) I couldn't find as many instructions for this type of square as for traditional granny squares but I did pick up a few hints; each side must have as many stitches as the previous round plus two at each side and then two slip stitches for turning the corner.
I really like this diamond shape that two squares together make.
I'm being quite quick about joining the squares and simply stitching the final round together on two squares. I'm really making the whole thing up as I go along and quite enjoying it.
