What advice would you give someone starting this project? When making such a large and time consuming blanket for a family member, do everything you can to prevent it from getting lost in the mail (which happened to me..grumble..grumble..USPS). To prevent your creation from getting lost in the mail, do NOT pack in a box that used to contain medical devices (even if the letters are blacked out). Get as much insurance as you can. And pay for Delivery Confirmation, and anything else to insure that it get's the recipient.

making my first rectangular granny and I'm an experienced crochet of 40 yrs. Question? I'm left handed and so far converting a pattern from right to left has never been a problem until now. A square granny for us lefties goes clockwise. Right handed people crochet a square granny counter clockwise. Here's how I THINK I should crochet rectangular: chain. for the middle beg. Then what? Thanks, Judy I bought all the same colors by "accident" & I love it!

Well, I'm a right-y so I don't know how much I can help. There are great pictures in the pattern link (http://iamtotallyobsessedwithyarn.blogspot.com/2006/01/granny-square-pattern-with-pictures.html). But I'd like to think that after your base chain, you could go on the opposite side of the V's into the butts of the stitches if that would work for you.

This is incredible! I'm almost finished with a scarf for my daughter. Then I begin your blanket. Mine will be a large afghan to cuddle up in when crochet & watching TV. Curious . . how long did it take to crochet?

About a year, off and on.

I've started the afghan. I've done all kinds of square grannies. I don't understand how to go around the corner. Any suggestions?

Check out the pictures in the pattern. That may help with the corners. http://iamtotallyobsessedwithyarn.blogspot.com/2006/01/granny-square-pattern-with-pictures.html
