There were lots and lots of these smallish granny squares and I decided to join them as is, rather than crochet more rounds to make them 25 CM as I normally do. Then I joined them into groups of four...
Then I joined these blocks into rows.
The project just got worked on intermittently over recent months. But finally, last week, I finished!
I used a total of 192 of the squares with some 'leftovers'; 11 blocks of 4 squares each, left to start another project sometime in the future. Whew! Lol
I'm pleased with the final result even though there were LOTS of little ends to sew in.
I think the squares were crocheted over a fair bit of time with the unknown crocheter's technique improving as the time went by. The yarn is wool which makes the blanket a little heavy...but not too much! Because it is wool and in paler colours, it will not go to a homeless person...more likely to a DV women's refuge or somewhere similar.
I edged the blanket with a simple shell edging, using some soft, cream coloured wool yarn. I wonder what plans the crocheter had for all their squares???
