As some of you may recall, I've been working on granny rectangles since I made my first granny chain HERE .
I made an updated version of that design few months later, when I was contacted by Claire Montgomerie to submit a granny bunting pattern for issue 100 of Inside Crochet magazine (look HERE ).
During last spring (in May) I made a couple of necklaces based on the original pattern of my granny rectangles and I showed the results on my Instagram feed .
Recently I started a chevron blanket, using both the granny stitch and some granny rectangles arranged according to the herringbone pattern, as you can see :
Anyway, why I'm here today bothering you about granny rectangles???
The answer is very simple : I just wanted to update the pattern, as I was no more convinced about it as I didn't like how the corners of the rectangle were shaped!
So, if you are interested, I'm going to show you what I did for the new granny rectangle and something more!!
WHAT YOU NEED :
- a hook , in my case a 5mm
- some yarn : I had some leftovers from HOBBII MEGABALL in green (yarn A), navy blue (yarn B) and turquoise (yarn C)
In the above picture you see two rectangles : A is the one made with the old pattern, while B is the one I'm going to write about!
