This February, I was looking for a granny square to make and use up a ton of yarn from my stash. I saw so many pretty patterns on Ravelry, but something about the "Weekend in Stockholm" really caught my eye.
I started working on it during a week that my husband was working 2nd shift. The girls were doing there own thing and the hubby wasn't around so I basically crocheted every spare moment after work, dinner and homework.
This was my very first square. Isn't it pretty?
One square multiplied into a total of 35 squares. These were my first 16 squares. I don't think I have any two squares that are exactly the same.
I finished up all 35 squares in a week flat. Next was joining them together. I didn't mind this process. I really enjoyed watching it come together from individual squares to a whole afghan.
I decided to do a granny stripe border with a few of the colors I had a good bit left of. The only thing I bought for this project was one skein of Aran for the border.
Looking at this picture, I realized that I didn't get a picture of the afghan after I added the final scalloped border in Aran. It really sets it off!
You can see more about my project on my Ravelry PAGE.
If you stop by, leave me a comment so I can return the visit!!
