Larksfoot Granny Afghan by Jeanne Steinhilber

The Crochet Larksfoot Granny Afghan is a FTM (from the middle) design, starting with a square, but then changing to a rectangle.

For this project, I used Caron Cakes with Red Heart With Love yarn and they really worked well together.  I have been wanting to design a square to rectangle blanket like this for a while now.  The square is lengthened on 2 ends working in rows after the square is completed.  But if you enjoy the square, in the case of a bed topper blanket, just keep going until you reach your desired size.

I want to add a disclaimer to this blog.  I am just an amateur when it comes to photography.  I use the natural light that comes in thru my window.  When I zoom in, the colors change from when I pull back.  All of the photos you see here are the same blanket.  The last 2 photos at the bottom of this post are the closest to the true colors.  But don’t focus on my colors!  Use your imagination to create your own color story.  I can’t wait to see what other combinations you all will come up with.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
