I decided I wanted to make a plaid with a certain seventies vibe.
And now, 285 squares further, it's ready. Ready!
I think it does have a vintage feel about it....
So here it is!
Ready for a cosy afternoon with hot almond milk chocolate & a book...
And this is what it looks like as a bed cover...

Please click here for the pattern and chart for the Granny Flower Squares.
I used the join-as-you-go method for joining the squares. Normally I only use this method if motifs have the same outer colour (same colour in the last round). Otherwise the colours of the different motifs seem to bleed into eachother where you make the join, which makes the result sometimes a bit messy. However, with the muted colours I used for this throw it doesn't bother me.
I decided to go for a somewhat lacy edging. Which meant spending quite some time flipping through my crochet books and looking on the internet.
However, I was worried the border might ruffle. So I crocheted the border with a smaller hook than the squares. The squares were crocheted with a 4 mm hook, the middle border rows with a 3,5 mm hook. It turned out fine. No ruffles!
Hope you like it!
(And I'd love to hear what your favourite joining method is...)
