Evie’s Lapghan (Free Pattern)

I made this lovely lapghan for my grandmother, Evie, using my Penny’s Willow Square pattern. The color scheme is vintage and dreamy! My finished blanket (after blocking) measured about 4.5 ft by 5.5 ft and is a perfect size to cuddle up on the couch in the evening!

To join my squares, I used the flat braid join method (tutorial can be found here) in the color used for the last round of each square. The squares should be joined in the following order (all listed Left to Right and starting from the top of the blanket:

Row 1:      10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3
Row 2:      7, 8, 9, 4, 5, 6
Row 3:      4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Row 4:      1, 2, 3, 10, 11, 12
Row 5:      10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3
Row 6:      7, 8, 9, 4, 5, 6
Row 7:      4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Row 8:      1, 2, 3, 10, 11, 12

I finished my lapghan with 6 rounds of granny square edging in sage, white, sunshine, bone, soft blue, and off white. To make the granny square edging, double crochet twice in each of the loops left on the outer edge of the squares from joining. In the corners you double crochet 3 times, chain 2 and double crochet 3 more times in the corner loop. Repeat this each round for all of the colors.
