Never Ending Granny Square Afghan Progress

This is my progress so far on my Never Ending Granny Square Afghan.  Here is a link to a great You Tube video tutorial.  I'm almost at the end of my first three skeins (one of each color).  I have 2 more of each color so it will end up a bit larger.  I'm using Cascade 220 yarn.  I had 3 skeins each of the black, lime and white.



The photo above is the afghan on point so you don't see the twisted look in the center.  When I made my Giant Granny Square Afghan seen in this post and this post, I turned my work over after every round.  That prevents the afghan from being "in a twist".  When you are working with 3 skeins (or 5 as shown in the You Tube Video), there is no choice but to go in all one direction.   The great part about this afghan is that you don't have all of the ends to weave in after each round.


I've started my blanket over from the one shown below.  I think I did something wrong when I started it (I was following a different tutorial), and my center ended after the green without spiralling.  


If you look at the one on the right (below) that I'm working on now, and compare it to the one on the left you can see a difference.  See how the one on the right spirals out from the green center.  The one on the left doesn't.  It begins as a regular granny square.  I'll tear that one out and use the yarn on the bigger blanket.
 
This has been a fun project, and if you would like to see other versions of this Never Ending Granny Square Afghan go over and visit Cyn's blog.  Cyn is using 5 skeins of yarn, and she tells a great way to keep your yarn from tangling when working on this project.  She was the one that found the tutorial on line showing this Never Ending Granny Square and sent the photo and link to our little group.  You can also look at Pat's afghan in this post.  She is using 5 skeins.

I hope you are finding some time to take a few stitches today.

Thanks for visiting!

  2. Yes, I agree with Pat. YOur latest version is wonderful! I'm in love with your color choices -- I think the huge value difference really shows the spiral. Isn't this fun doing it together?? I'm having a ball with you two and recently Elly started one so she is with us also! Excellent. I need to post my progress... I've been a slacker. lol
