Valentine Color Granny Ghan

35 posts in this topic

Here is my finished granny ghan - I used a couple ideas I got from a few of the motifs in Annie's Attic 101 Granny Squares, in order to make a large ghan and not just small motifs as in the pattern book.

I put 2 rows of chains between each row for more of a windowpane look to it.

So this ghan will be a complete surprise to my new next door neighbor who's a older single lady.  She was soo nice to us when we moved in and comes for coffee and visiting with us.

Hope she likes this yarn Valentine :manyheart

Thank you all for your kind words - tho' I must admit it's getting hard now to wait till the 14th to give it to her :manyheart

I realized now in looking at the pics that the 2 chained rows between each row look much nicer in person and when the ghan is held up have a "lacier appearance".

I really enjoyed doing this kind of "granny" instead of the typical as it doesn't have the large gaps between the 3 st groupings  so it feels alot warmer and thicker.

Again thanks for looking! :hug

That is just AweSommmmmmme!!!!  She should absolutely love it!!  I like the colors you used, and I agree, I like the way the stitches don't have such a gap between.  Should be very snuggly!

The colors are fantastic and I absolutely love how the "holes" aren't so big as they are on a granny stitch.
