Granny Square Flag Blanket | Posh Pooch Designs

Granny Square Flag Blanket by

I am so very happy how this blanket turned out.
 The Squares were easy to crochet and It was 
easy to put together.

The Blanket Measures about 42 X 42 Inches.
It's a great size For a lapghan or Throw. If
 you want a larger Blanket, just make more
 squares and make it as big as you want.

You will need 5 Regular 12 inch Granny Squares, also. 
How To Make a Granny Square -LINK
The Granny Square will need 10 rows for a 12 inch Granny Square.
1 red, 1 white, 1 Gold and 2 Blue

Next, you will need to begin joining the squares together. I joined my Squares using Single crochet.
For joining techniques, Click This LINK

 Make sure all your Flags are facing the same direction.
When Joining, I crocheted 3 squares together, 
and  another 3 squares together. After that, 
I crochet the 2 rows of Squares together.

The Trim:
Use the Gold yarn For the trim. 
Join yarn to one of the Corners, and continue to stitch the 
Granny Square Style, Working all around the Out side of the Blanket.

Repeat for a second Row.

The last Row we will be stitching a modified Shell Stitch Row.
* 5 dc in the 1st ch2 sp, sc in the next ch2 sp,*
Repeat From * to * all Around the trim of the Blanket.
Join to the 1st st, and tie off. Weave in your ends.

This Blanket can be used as a Table Cloth, 
Table Runner, Blanket, Throw or Lapghan.
Or What ever you like.
