Just a quick project update: my first ever granny square ‘blankey’ is done and we are celebrating in a moment at a beautiful, native Indonesian restaurant which I will probably tell you about in another post 😀
What can I say, this is my biggest crochet project to date. Which almost didn’t make it because of my fickle disposition 🙄
I recently learned about a technique called “true squares” which I applied while doing the border for this blankey. It’s about avoiding having squares with rounded corners by making the center stitch at each corner taller than all the other stitches.
What I did here was make the center stitch at each corner a treble, taller than the rest, which were doubles. That way the diagonal is lengthened, creating a ‘true square’. Give it a try if you haven’t yet. It really makes a difference.
Okay then, we’re off to that resto!
Have a great weekend! ❤
