One Big Granny Square...  

Posted by: G.R.I.T.S. in ,

This is one easy pattern, I've done a Lapghan like this before. I made one for my hope chest, and it was white, Pink, and blue. Looks cool, but easy to make and whip out!(In the Photo it's not the one on the Lady's lap...)

Lapghan measures approximately 39" square.
Crochet Hook: 5.5 mm [US I-9].

GAUGE: Rnds 1-6 = 7 ¾" across. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

With CB, ch 5; join with a sl st in 5th ch from hook to form a ring.

Rnd 1 (Right Side): Ch 3, 2 dc in ring, ch 3, [3 dc in ring, ch 3] 3 times; join with a sl st in top of ch-3.

Rnd 2: Sl st in next 2 dc and into ch-3 sp, ch 3, (2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) all in same ch-3 sp, ch 1, * (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 sp, ch 1; rep from * around; join to top of ch-3. Fasten off.
