Granny Pinwheel Throw


After three weeks and two days of making triangles......I've finally finished piecing them all together, making the border~I can now say.....this one is DONE!

 This blanket went through three phases to complete believe it or not. First phase, I made all the triangles. All two-hundred of them!!!  One-hundred in white and one-hundred in different colors from my stash.

Then phase two begins. I joined each color triangle to a white triangle to make a square, plus adding a border around each square in white to make them more square. (Did that make sense?) I hope you get the picture!

And finally phase three, I joined all the squares together by slip stitching into the back loops only. Once that was complete, I made a two round circle made of single crochets to add in the middle of each pinwheel to make them stand out a little bit more and the border was added last, of course.

The border is my very own little design made up of single crochet and trebles. (Pattern to come at a later date)




What will come next?????  Who knows. I know I did say I was up for a challenge and I have a little something in mind~ so until then.....thanks for stopping in today.

If you would like to make your own pinwheel throw, you can find the pattern here for my EXTRA WIDE GRANNY TRIANGLES.

Happy Summer!!!
xx Shari
