Spiral granny squares - finished at last!

It's 2 months later and the blanket is finally finished!



I wasn't sure how big it will be, so I just carried on until I ran out of yarn. When I was about halfway I weighed the finished bit as well as the remaining yarn to get an idea of how many rows I had to make. I had to plan the border as the colours are different there.



The blanket is really soft and cosy. It measures 1.54m x 1.32m (60" x 52"), which is ideal to snuggle up on the couch...

So beautiful! I love the way the spirals from different blocks merge. :)

Greetings from Alabama, USA! I found you when I found the spiral granny on crochetme! I wondered how several squares would look. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I had been urged to have some of my poems and writings printed but too expensive, then I learned about blogspot and set it up a couple of months ago. About half is religious/spiritual, but some is about music and crafts. It's blindedbyinsight.blogspot.com Hope you'll visit me there! Netagene

Hi, I followed your link from the Granny Spiral pattern at Crochet Me. Your afghan is FABULOUS! I'd love to try and make one, too. Would you mind telling me what you had to change in the pattern in order to make it flow so nicely? It's just lovely!

I love this afghan. I'm probably going to be selfish and make one for myself. Who am I kidding it'll end up being a prayer shawl for the hospital or a blankie for my granddaughter (just like all the other afghans I start).

The finished blanket looks Amazing, Ansie! I hope you get some cooler weather one of these days so you can really enjoy curling up under it!

Hi there! I found your afgan on Pinterest. Very Cool! I am an avid long time knitter, but this makes me want to learn how to crochet. (better than I do now at least. :)
