I loved the triangle motif with blocks of rich colors, and I wondered if it was possible to make triangles out of granny stripes, since if you look closely, each granny stitch is offset from the one below, creating a natural triangle effect. A traditional granny square is 4 triangles meeting point to point, see my granny square top for a prime example! ) Make sure to check out their projects and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below to win all the yarn needed to make all. (in FISHERMAN) Work 1 dc in 3rd ch of previous row. If you have 2 skeins of any one color, you can use both of them at the same time when there are 2 triangles of the same color. Pop all the skeins onto your Modular Bobbin Holder to keep all the colors in the right order. On the first granny row, work granny stitches (3 dc clusters) into every 3rd stitch.
Or course, you can add your own border as you see fit.
The end result is this Love Triangles Granny Stripe Baby Blanket that was gifted recently to a friend and her soon to be baby boy.
When Michele from Stitch and Hustle approached me and asked if I’d like to join her in a Granny blog hop in September, I knew the month was already going to be a doozy.
And that’s all this baby blanket really is, just row after row of granny stitches.
By changing colors at the right time, you build triangles instead of stripes.
With a huge fall announcement at work, and a couple high profile events to manage, I knew my blog work was going to suffer, but how can I resist playing along with some of my favorite makers?
