I started this project in May of last year, making 56 squares of different stitch types

By January, I had all the squares put together and I added three rows of crochet border. Most of the ends are tucked in by now.

That's very nice! Was it fun learning all the different patterns?

Who says a blanket has to be any particular size?

yes it was fun, although some of the patterns lend themselves better to a blanket than others
I did seed stitch, bordered stickinette, garter stitch, knit two rows purl two rows, and mock rib
some of these stitch patterns I got off of lion brand
and I agree, who says size matters when it comes to baby blankets?:teehee: :woot: :woohoo:

Wow, that is too cool! Were all the stitch patterns different?

I bet that helped you from getting bored with such a big project...who is the lucky recipient?

That's so lovely and cozy looking too. I've never regretted making my grandchildren's baby blankets big--they use them until they are 4 or 5, and they can still cover up! I admire you for sewing all those together. That takes patience and good eyesight! Great job.
