Giant Granny Patches

Original and best… The classic granny square works wonderfully to create a patchwork effect in this beautiful vintage style blanket that could be straight from Granny’s attic. 

Classic Granny Square motifs joined using Join As You Go Technique and a wide border to show it off in style.  Includes: A full written pattern for my Classic Grannie Square together with joining information, a full colour breakdown and layout, border instructions and useful links.
