Granny Square Afghan {with Scallop Trim}

All winter I was slowly working on crocheting some colorful granny squares. I knew white would be the dominate color, but also knew I wanted lots of color within the white. There are so many variations of the granny square, but I fell in love with Pip's style over at Meet Me at Mikes and used it as my foundation.

It looks so pretty draped across my bed.

To join the granny squares, I crocheted the granny stitch following Carina's tutorial. I loved how seamless the afghan turned out.

This was a fun project on many levels: 1. it was easy to do anywhere. 2. the pattern didn't vary, so simple. 3. the best-- my daughter, Bean was doing her own granny squares at the same time. She chose a different granny pattern and colors, but she is not quite finished yet.

Once the granny squares were connected, I wanted to tie the afghan together with some edging. I ended up doing a simple scalloped edge in gray and I LOVE how this finishes the whole sweet, soft fluffy-white afghan. I am now tempted to make a few small Granny afghans as gifts for future use.
