I've been making Baby blankets and throws with Granny squares but I wanted to make a thin cotton bedspread for the summer. Have to say it won't be finished for this Summer though. In my head I was going to use different squares of blue in different patterns.
Then I saw on WWW that someone had done this and used a Granny Square pattern book which at the time looked familiar. Of course it did I actually owned the book. The blogger unfortunately I can't find at the moment mentioned what patterns she used. So I used that to begin with added I few that I wanted to try. Has I crochet them I deleted a few too.
Above are the colours I've chosen but you can eliminate the white it didn't work with the cream..
Because of the weight I knew I wouldn't be able to connect it all in one go. I've been adding 9 together them making them into a strip not ideal but it looks ok and is easier on my joints. Slightly worried that this strip is 90 inches long so maybe it will be not next summer but the year after I get it finished.!
