The Granny Rectangle - Motif and Blanket


The Granny Rectangle is one of those things that sounds a really easy alternative to the traditional Granny Square, however it can sometimes end up being a little more tricky to get right, for two reasons. These are achieving a neat centre Set-Up Row and creating the right proportions for a specific project.


So I've put together a combination of my preferred Starting Method and sizing proportions, to create a rectangle that works well as a Baby Blanket, Lap Blanket and Pet Blanket.


Below you'll find direct links to both a Left Handed and Right Handed Version of my Video Tutorial, showing you how to make a neat centre panel for your blanket.

For my blanket (pictured at the top of the page), I used UK double knitting Yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. The variegated yarn was 1 x 150 gram Sirdar Pattercake Yarn Cake and the finished piece measured 43cm/45cm wide x 58cm long and will now have a 7.5cm border added. During the video I also give you suggested Yarn Quantities for three approximate finished sizes.


The Border will now be added and published in my next blog and on my YouTube Channel.


So for now, happy crocheting and I'll see you soon with the border!
