Orange- Spice (1711)

Hook: 3.5mm

Stitches: 

The squares: Traditional granny squares using treble crochet and chain stitches. These consisted of 4 rounds and were joined using the join-as-you-go method. 

The border: Single rounds of double crochet in each colour

Approx size: 1.5m x 1.0m

Blocking: Yes :-) I blocked the completed blanket by soaking in Eucalan and pinned flat to dry.
