I wanted to make a non traditional blanket for a girl. Something that wouldn’t look too baby-ish. Once I started joining with all the purple, it definitely lost the tie die look I was hoping for.

The granny squares were done using the pattern at:http://www.purlbee.com/2007/03/30/granny-squares/.

I added a row of single crochet and one of double crochet to the edge.

So many ends to weave in. I am doing another granny stripe next for a Christmas gift but not changing color every two rows. Less weaving in to do.
