I decided on a simple three-color border for my SweeTart Granny afghan,
starting with white in plain double crochet, followed by two rounds of RHSS ‘Tea Leaf’, one dc and one hdc, for just the right amount of green. I then ended with a sc/chain picot edging in bright pink. Perky little pink points that were fun to make, and to look at!
I’m pleased with the ratio of the three colors within the border and I really like how the white sets the green and pink away from the blanket’s mix of many scrap colors.
What a cheerful-looking blanket!
I admit that I like looking at it tumbling off the bench far more than seeing it laid out flat.
The idea of doing a double-round of assorted solid squares is far from my best. sigh. Instead of adding to the overall design, it’s distracting. I wish I’d used only very light scraps or a single color for those two rounds. But, no worries, I still think this is a fun little blanket. Finished Size: 41″ x 56″.
I enjoyed playing with the single-color scrap squares. An entire blanket of assorted solid squares would be a relatively quick scrap project, thanks to join-as-you-go! Here are some of my favorite examples from Ravelry: Giant Granny Patches, Little Squares Afghan, and Sisters Scrap Afghan.
And tall those little pastel centers that I have leftover. . .
well, they’re like little ‘Granny Seeds’. They can wait in our attic until the time is right to grow yet another scrap granny.
