granny square sampler afghan- week 12

I am a little embarrassed to admit that I am still behind on finishing my squares. Didn’t touch the crochet hook over the weekend. I fully intend to catch up. This whole week has been a flurry of crazy, which is mostly over now. Sitting down to crochet sounds just about perfect to me.

(All the granny square assignments can be found on this page.)

The granny square spiral. I love it because its just another version of using those same stitches we’ve been using all along. I love it because it will add a little wonkiness to our afghan (I’m breaking out of my need for symmetry with this project!). I had a version of this pinned to my crochet board, but the video was not in English. Reader Grace read my mind and sent me a link to this version (thank you Grace!). You can find the written instructions here (sorry, no video). Make 3 of these this week.

As always, all the weeks of the granny square sampler project can be found on this page.

If anyone has any requests for squares as we work through the last weeks of our granny square sampler, please email me at wisecraftblog@gmail.com and I will definitely try to get them in.

    I began this project 3 weeks ago having never crocheted before. I am officially caught up and addicted. Thanks for teaching me to crochet! How much yarn do you think we will need to bind it all together? I am running out –I was using leftover full o sheep yarn from my stash and now discover that Joanne’s isn’t carrying it any longer. I need to order more online from somewhere, but am not sure how much to get. Thanks!

    Hi Sarah, I’m so glad you’re doing the crochet a long with us! I’m not quite sure how much yarn we will need to connect the squares. Some of us will probably want to do that step all in one color, others may want to use 2 or 3. My very loose guess is 3 skeins or so (all in one color, or mixing). Please don’t hold me to that though, but maybe that will help you.
    And Joann’s isn’t carrying Full-O-Sheep yarn anymore? Or just the color you need? Yikes!

    I’ve tried it once and pulled it out again, Not sure what I’m doing wrong.
    But I’ll give it another go.
    Thanks Blair for adding it to the sampler, it will be a lovely addition!
