InstructionsThe original pattern is for one large, striped granny square. I used self striping yarn and made 12 smaller blocks to make a large afghan. A 13th square was stitched onto a cotton pillowcase to make a reversible pillow.
Soft, self striping, medium weight boucle yarn.
What was your inspiration?
My 8-year-old great-nephew is about to become a big brother for the first time. I'm making several items for the new baby and I want to make sure that the no-longer-only-child continues to feel loved and included.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
As I leaned with this project, crochet and boucle yarn are not a comfortable fit. The individual stitches tend to get lost in the fuzzy boucle. Working in a granny square is much easier than starting off with a long chain.
