Another Squaring the Big Circle Afghan

Untitled

Here's a recent blanket I made for one of my aunts using my Squaring the Big Circle pattern.  Actually, I can't take full credit for this project as my mom picked out all the colors to match my aunt's living room, AND she sewed in ALL the ends!!!

The specifics: worsted weight yarn (Vanna's Choice) {I think around 20 skeins total}, size J (6mm) hook, blanket made of 7 squares by 7 squares with join-as-you-go, for border: one round of (3 dc, ch 1) in each space around and (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in each corner and then one round of 1 sc in each stitch and space around with 3 sc in each corner.

I thought the four colors that make up the circles looked great together!  (And no one circle is the same!)  I hear that it matches beautifully with her couch!

(If you've made anything from this pattern, don't forget I have a flickr group if you want to add your pictures!)

  1. Those big circles are really eye-catching, Kate. The pattern and colours remind me of retro crochet. Your aunt must have been thrilled to get something that matches her living-room.
    What a friendly mum you have to sew in all your loose ends! Can I borrow her?!
    Talking of colour schemes, I think I'm going to have to buy myself a new couch which goes with all my crochet!!

  10. I want someone to sew the ends for mee too. It's the part I hate from knitting or crocheting. Usually I trie to make stuff that's seamless or something that I can crochet together and not use a needle.

    And I also need someone to sew in the ends!!
    Have a happy week, Kate!
