Week One: Crochet Challenge

We’re one week in for my crochet challenge!  In my past post, I talked about how I was going to challenge myself to a one year crochet project.  The idea is that, each week, I’ll crochet two squares that will go into a blanket.  At the end of the year, I’ll piece everything together (if I don’t piece as I go), and then I’ll have a nice blanket that we can use to snuggle up with on the couch or to put on the bed.  It won’t be a full comforter sized blanket, as that would take forever, but I do plan on it being about 4.5 feet x 6 feet at the end of the year.  So…definitely a good-sized blanket!

FullSizeRenderI initially thought I’d do one square in the granny square pattern, and one square as a new square out of my book.  At this point, I’m not sure how that’s going to work.  I found a really neat way to connect granny squares as you go, so I might just make the whole blanket out of granny squares.  This past week, I did one of each, and I really do like how the second pattern turned it!  It was a bobble pattern square, and I am a HUGE fan of the bobble!

I’m not sure what all colors I’m going to use.  I have a huge stash of yarn, so I’ll probably just pull as I go and see how it takes shape.  I’m really excited to see how this turns out, and I like the idea of seeing it take shape as I go along.  Hopefully you all enjoy it too!

Much love,
