Mega Granny Square Jumper !!!

I started to crochet my first granny square for my jumper-to-be on last 4th of October...




... and little by little, crocheting on a daily basis, I added rounds after rounds ...





... while I was working on other two w.i.p.s, like my PONCHO and the GEODE PILLOW ...




... and when I completed 26 rounds for the first granny, I wanted to block it to see its real measures : it reaches 74 cm for each side (more or less!) ...




The yarns I've been using were all from my personal stash, no new yarn was bought for this project and some are discontinued, while others I have no more the band with all the details or brand.
I will try to give you a kind of yarn list, starting from the center of the granny (I was working with a 6mm hook, btw) :

KATIA AZTECA shade 7837 fuchsia-maroon-brown (53%wool, 47%acrylic)
FILATI TROPICAL LANE SPENDOBENE SUPER SPORT shade 266 off white (47%merino wool, 53%dralon)

Once the blocking of the fist granny square was completed, I decided to crochet even one more mega granny and two "smaller" ones as sleeves ...




For each sleeve (after blocking, both sleeves mesure 48 cm each side) I've been working 16 rounds, following this yarn sequence (from the center to the last round) :

SIRDAR CLICK DK shade 200 spicy pink
FILATI TROPICAL LANE SPENDOBENE SUPER SPORT shade 583 bordeaux
WENDY QUASAR CHUNKY shade 2577 infrared
PATONS JET 12 ply shade 812 pink

FILATI TROPICAL LANE SPENDOBENE SUPER SPORT shade 34 mustard yellow
KARTOPU LAKE shade K1001 silver grey

KATIA AZTECA shade 7837 fuchsia-maroon-brown
APOLLO SCHACHENMAYR NOMOTTA shade 00050 marine




Once all the 4 pieces were blocked ...




... It took me some time to take the courage to give a shape to my project, as I never crocheted a jumper before ...




So, last week, in just one morning (with no interruption!!!!), I started to join all the pieces together ...










... so it was ready after some hours (and some single crochets !!!) to wear ...







... don't you believe me ??? ;oD

Here is the proof that this jumper is really wearable and right my size ...






... it as long sleeves and a very cosy fit ... just the way I like it!!!

... do you agree, too? ;oD
