Perhaps if you’re learning to crochet, a blanket sounds like a daunting first project. Why not a pot holder? Because crocheted blankets are amazing! Just like the ones your grandma made half a century ago, they’re artful and beautiful and timeless, much better than a pot holder and just as easy!
Our Learn to Crochet a Granny Square Blanket Kit is the first step to putting your own creative energy into this wonderful crafting tradition. You will learn everything there is to know about making a basic granny square, including how to wind a skein of yarn into a ball, how to work the necessary stitches, and how to sew your finished squares together into a blanket that will appreciated fifty years from now!
Our Kit comes in three beautiful palettes and includes all the Worsted Twist and Worsted Twist Heather you’ll need to make a baby-size blanket, plus four crochet hooks, a tapestry needle, folding scissors and a step-by-step booklet designed for first-time crocheters.
Forget the pot holder and get ambitious. And most importantly, don’t let granny have all the fun! -Whitney
