Purple Around the World quilt-ghan

Recommended Posts

Wow, very awesome! Love the color combination you used. Though I could be biased since it's in my favorite color. ;) It turned out so lovely. You must have an awesome amount of patience! All those little squares! I don't know if I could have stuck this one through. :lol I know she will :manyheart this!

I have a question, probably a dumb one, but how did you figure out how much yarn you needed and how many of each color of saltines?

I love it! The purples go really well together and I love the pattern. I totally admire your ability to make that many squares, and join them, without cursing them and swearing off them forever =)

Not a dumb question at all (and I asked too!) In the Every Happy House CAL there are a bunch of people making different quilt-ghans. The owner of the HappyYellowHouse webpage (the Cara mentioned above) has made estimates of how many saltines she gets out of a skein of Red Heart Super Saver yarn and figured she gets anywhere from 40 to nearly 50 on occassion (depending on your tension and all that). I use that number as an estimate of how many skeins I need once I have drawn out a graph of the colors and then counted how many of each color needed.

Wow! :) I cannot imagine taking on such a project, I *hate* weaving in ends *and* I hate putting pieces together! But your ghan sure is good looking.

Love it! I've been wanting to make a quilted one, but maybe I'll eventually make a crocheted one. Would be a cute baby blanket too!

Karen - Just beautiful. I love those blankets, but just don't have the intestinal fortitude for all those ends. Yours came out awesome. Great job!
