Crochet a square a day!

There’s no doubt about it! Crochet has kept me going this year. I’ve been able to take it with me, even to unplanned places like hospitals, and on travels further afield like Norway. I began the year by deciding, on the spur of the moment, that I would crochet a granny square a day, not really thinking it through, and starting in a very haphazard way. I had no real idea what they would become, the only thing I knew for sure is that they would NOT be joined into a single entity. I knew it would be too big to handle!

So, as the year progressed, the way became a little clearer. Some squares were of more use than others, as you will see when the final result is revealed at the end of the year (it’s still a work in progress, obviously). It isn’t giving anything away, however, to tell you that by ‘fudging’ it (ie making a few extras along the way) I will have completed the squares for six blankets/throws – whatever you like to call them. This has not interfered with other crochet commitments, but has run alongside. So, I’m planning to do something similar next year, but this time I’m planning ahead and it will be more structured.

I’m planning on making six blankets during 2020! I’ve already planned the first one, and I’m inviting you to join me. The rules will be simple – basically just make a square a day! However, if you would really like to follow along with me I’m planning on posting a list of the squares at regular intervals. This really will mean that as the year progresses you will have a finished article, then another … etc. Some people have already expressed a desire to join in, and that’s really exciting! I will be making just basic grannies, although I may change my mind as the year progresses, but if you want to alter the square and still follow along, that’s fine.

More details to follow, colours etc, before too long. One a day! It won’t be arduous!!

    1. Hi Sandra. It’s actually Storm Blue, sage, Lincoln and Buttermilk. In truth though, it’s a fraud! The light (daylight) was so bad I used a filter. Looking forward to seeing your squares 😊


      1. Many thanks for rectifying the colours for me! It’s not always easy from photos, I know! I am rather partial to pastels, so I will most probably adapt the colours in my squares. I have a good stock of Stylecraft DK!

  1. Hello again! I’ve been having a few practice runs with different combinations on my granny squares. I found a brighter than usual one which is based on the Kath Kidson colours (without the yellow) which I feel happy with! I shall look forward to seeing the pastel combinations you’re going to propose for the pastel lovers among us!
