Looking for a fun and creative way to add some color to your next crochet project? Look no further than this guide on how to make a gorgeous rainbow-edged granny blanket! With expert tips and step-by-step instructions, you’ll have your vibrant blanket ready in no time – all you need is a bit of yarn and a crochet hook! Gather Supplies and Prepare to Begin : Before you can get started on your rainbow-edged granny blanket, you’ll need to gather all the necessary supplies.
This includes seven colors of DK weight yarn of your choice, a 4 mm crochet hook and a large-eye needle for weaving in the ends. Once you have these supplies ready and in front of you, it’s time to get started on creating your vibrant masterpiece! To begin the project, make a slipknot and chain five stitches. To create the granny square you’ll need to complete four rounds. The first round should consist of three double crochets in each of the center five stitches that form your chain. Join your round with a slip stitch and chain three (these are the corners).
Then, continue by adding two double crochets into each of the next three spaces and three double crochets into corner space. You may want to write down the pattern or print it out so you can look at it as you work through each round. Once your blanket is complete, all that’s left to do is weave in all those ends and admire your masterpiece! Change yarn colors and finish the granny square: Insert your hook into the third stitch of any corner. Yarn over and pull up a loop, leaving 4 loops on the hook.
Change colors to match the new corner by dropping the old color and grabbing the new yarn color and pulling it through all four loops still on your hook. This completes the final step in creating each granny square – now you’re ready to move onto joining them together! To join the granny squares, you need to work slip stitch crochet in the back loop of each corner. Start by inserting your hook into the third stitch of any corner on one granny square. Yarn over and pull up a loop, then insert your hook in to the third stitch of the corresponding corner on another granny square and pull up a loop – there should be starting 4 loops on your hook.
Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops to complete the slip stitch; this is how you join two corners. Continue joining all corners until all four have been completed, and connect all remaining edges using single crochet stitches. Once finished, weave in your ends to secure them and open up any gaps created bydifference in tension when switching colors.Before you join the squares, you may want to change yarn colors to create an interesting border on the blanket. To do this, start working a row with a new color and make single crochet stitches around until you reach a corner.
