Here is the Sunburst Granny Square Blanket I have mentioned 2 weeks ago in the color combination tutorial. Wow…. finally, I have finished this blanket after the took off since last year!!! Not that it took me a year to complete it, it is because I stopped after I have finished all the squares but couldn’t made up my mind of which perfect join to use.
In my previous granny projects, I have used “join-as-you-go” method (in this pattern) and “back-loop-join” (in this pattern). Now, I wanted to explore a new join method, so I finally decide to use “flat-slip-stitch-join” (tutorial
to follow soon, here) for this Sunburst Granny Square Blanket. Love the flat seam line created by this joining method. Click here to find out other methods you could use.
The yarns I used in this blanket are Lion Brand’s BabySoft Acrylic Yarn. Even they are acrylic / nylon mix yarns but they are soft and comfortable, just nice for an air-conditioning room. I chose this range of yarn because it has a many pastel colors to choose from.
If you are not into huge blanket, you may adapt this method to crochet a smaller one. It is great as gift to newborn during baby shower, or as throw on the couch or cover for pillow etc. For smaller blanket, you need fewer yarn colors to crochet. Read this tutorial to check on how many colors to use to make your desire numbers of squares.
