Soft, cozy and easy to crochet is the Granny Blanket featuring Bernat Home Bundle Yarn. Showcased in Cream Denim Blue exclusively available at Jo-Ann.
This plush and warm blanket is ideal for those cool evenings. Playfully coloured by the unique changes of 5 colours and textures throughout the ball.
Inside the ball are very long segments of Bernat Blanket, Pipsqueak, Boucle and Chunky Yarns all by Bernat. The segements are sewn together by the winding machines to provide instant changes without knots.
This blanket is using 6 balls of Bernat Home Bundle and will measure 46″ x 58″. It is 7 squares x 6 squares = 42 squares in total. To avoid the sewing, the final rounds are attached with a slip stitch to the neighbouring square so that sewing strings that are typically used will not be the incorrect colour. So, no to the sewing.
Each square is a solid granny square and only 4 rounds! You should be able to hook these really quickly. There is no strategic doctoring of colours. The colours change as they come out of the ball.
Bernat Home & Baby Bundles are exclusive in the USA to Jo-Ann and in Canada to Walmart – Canada. Each location has their own exclusive colour selections. The Cream Denim Blue is only available at Jo-Ann USA. Sizes of the balls are same between the two locations and you can mix and match the Home Bundle with Baby Bundle as it’s the same yarn but has different colour options.
You need to complete 1 square and this become the starting square and all other squares begin attaching to a neighbour as you complete them.
Ch 4, join with sl st to beg ch to form ring.
Complete Rounds 1 – 3 as stated above.
You will attach with a slip stitch to the neighbouring square(s) as you crochet around. This will prevent you from sewing. This will include attaching at the ch-3 spaces in the corners. I would recommend you not join from the beginning when you start. Complete one side before starting the join. Try to ensure you only join up to 2 squares at one round.
Round 4 is as follows:
Ch 3, dc into same ch-3 space. *1 dc in each dc to next corner. Start the corner and pay attention to the middle chain of 3. Do 2 dc, ch 1. *Slip stitch to the matching stitch of the opposite square then ch 1. Repeat * once again to the next stitch. When doing the 2 dc for the corner. Slip stitch into the joining square before proceeding to dc. Dc as normal. Each time you go to dc into the square you are finishing and joining to a neighbour, just slip stitch to create the join.
When there is nothing to join to, just complete the remaining round as stated in Round 4 of the original square.
The finished afghan is 7 squares x 6 squares. If you prefer a smaller blanket or something bigger, you can continue to add more or take away squares. It won’t affect the final border.
You are joining as you go, so there will be no final assembly at the end of the project.
Join with a sl st to any corner of your blanket. Ch 1, 3 sc into same space. 1 sc in each stitch. At joins, place 1 sc at the ch-3 space on both sides of the join. Do not add any sc to the physical join between squares. Each corner will have 3 sc in each. When back to the beginning, join with a sl to to beg sc. Fasten off and weave in ends.
