Mitered Modern Granny Afghan
I hope you enjoy this new twist that I’m calling a Mitered Modern Granny Afghan. I’ve crocheted this project starting in one corner and building it similar to the corner to corner technique. You start by building a mitered square, then when you have the preferred width, you continue just working your rows back and forth on one side instead of two. This crochet blanket becomes completely and easily scale-able to any size you desire.
For this project, I used 5 Caron Chunky Cakes in colorway Trifle. The finished size is 46″ x 60″. You can easily continue on in pattern to either make is wider, longer or both. The Modern Granny block stitch and the #6 weight yarn makes this a fast and easy project. You can use any yarn if you prefer to stripe your project to match your decor.
