For some reason I decided to torture myself and make the majority of our Christmas presents this year. They’ve all turned out beautifully, but I’ll have to remember to space them out a little better next year to give myself more time. Since I didn’t have a lot of time for each gift, I opted for some quick projects.
This is the afghan I made for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. It’s basically a huge granny square, but instead of doing a bunch of smaller granny squares and taking way too much time to sew them all together, I just kept adding rounds until it was the size I wanted. I used two strands of yarn throughout ~ both to give it a little bulk so it was a faster project and to add a little extra warmth. If you’d like to make one like this for yourself, I used a size K crochet hook and approximately 14-16 ounces of each color. See the Giant Granny Square Afghan post for the pattern.
I also have one similar to this finished and for sale in my shop on Etsy. Check it out! I also welcome custom orders. If you would like an afghan made for you please contact me and I’ll be happy to work with you to create something beautiful for you.
