You all remember the Owl Granny Square pattern I shared last year. I’m afraid I’ve been of a procrastinator and haven’t finished the blanket those squares were meant for. (Sorry Jenny, I will give your little one a finished blanket before she is 16!) But I do have a finished blanket to show you thanks to Kristy, Littlewing17 at Ravelry.
She did a beautiful version in soft greens, yellows and browns. She did a circle square in one color for the non-owl squares. (I did more with a colored circle in the middle of a white square.)
She put the squares together using a flat braid and then attached a fabric back. (Here’s a good tutorial on doing a flat braid.)
Kristy says this is the biggest crochet project she’s ever done and I think it looks fabulous. Thanks Kristy for letting us share your photos, you’ve inspired me to get my blanket back out to finish.
