Spiral Granny Square Afghan

My friend, Cyn from Cyn's Quilted Travels blog finds the greatest crochet patterns, and she always tags me on Facebook so I can go check them out.  I have no very little will power so I usually grab a hook and some yarn and join in.  This is our latest venture:  The Spiral Granny Square Afghan.  I'm not sure that I did the center right, and I really don't like the way it looks like it is in a twist so I may start over.  I think my center should have spiraled out starting with the lime in the center.  If you go over and visit Cyn's blog, she has a post up that will tell you how you can crochet with multiple skeins of yarn and keep it from tangling.


I really love the lime, black and white color combination.  I bought some of each of these fabrics at our Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana, last month.

This quilt was hanging in Lolly's quilt shop for inspiration.

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

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

  1. maybe 3rd time will be the charm:

    LOVE your NEG. The colors are wonderful. I think your center is fine. Of course if you want the lime to be the first to spiral out, then round#2 should also be in the lime... then you can add in the other colors. But why undo what you've done when what you've already created looks so spectacular?!
    Thanks for the link back to my blog. I am happy you like the little no-tangle-tip. It really works, doesn't it?!
    I'm super happy we are crocheting together again... so much more fun that way. Elly is beg hers too, but won't be blogging about it just yet.
