It's been a long process getting this thing just right.
I finally realized I didn't like the whole "lots of squares" idea... Realized it when I was doing this blanket for my daughter actually. I hate weaving in all the ends and I hate having to join them. With that, I knew I had to change this up if I was really going to create something I was going to love in the end.
So, I looked at the squares I had finished...
And decided on which I liked best of all....
And decided to make one HUGE square of it instead:
Now, this I am Loving.
My plan is to make four squares using this pattern. Two like this, and then two with the colours reversed so that the different colours get used at a similar rate. Then I'll join them all together (joining four squares won't kill me) and then decide on a border dependent on what yarn I have left!
I am absolutely itching to hook the next square for this blanket, so toodles! This weekend will be the how-to-fold-a-starghan post :)
