Every year after the holidays, I choose a project to help fill the long winter evenings while watching my favorite TV programs. This is the end result of last winter's project. It is king size and it took 64 twelve inch granny squares to complete. It was made mostly from leftover yarn from other projects or purchased at yard sales. I used blue around the edge of each square and also two rows around the bedspread after it was assembled. It is very warm without the weight of a comforter.

With leftover yarn create enough squares to make a checkerboard. Save and clean cat food cans or tuna fish cans (enough for 2 sets of checkers). Paint cans first with primer. Then paint the cans with a color that contrasts the squares. You can crochet a simple chain to tie the board into a roll and make a simple granny square bag (two large squares sewn together and add two straps) to store your checkers in.

Here are two options. 1. Lay two squares together, wrong sides facing each other. Using yarn in a yarn needle, do an overhand stitch in the back loops only. 2. Crochet them together in this manner: SC in front square, CH 2, SC in back square. Usually picking up every other stitch for your SCs works well. Jayne.

Putting two squares face-to-face, do a single crochet in each stitch across - either in both sides of the stitch, or just in the back of the stitch. Each way, you'll have a different look on the front. You can use a matching, or a contrasting color. If your squares are multi-colored, why not pick out one of the inner colors to tie the squares together with.

I put the "right sides" toward each other an slip stitch

making a long strip of squares according to your size needed. Once all your strips are done then attach the strips together. Weave in any loose threads. For my kids poncho's and afghans I left the ends til last tied them in knots then weaved them ,for extra strength. I love grannie squares. have fun.
