Lapghan with Solid Granny Squares

So, I had the opportunity to visit a Michael's store on Monday. As I was perusing the aisles I happened upon some fantastic yarns! Sadly I was on a strict budget and could only get a couple of things. As I was frowning and scowling at all the opportunities I had to pass, I saw some clearance yarns on one of the end-caps.

It's called Caron United® and it was on sale for $.99 a skein! That's right in my budget guidelines! I chose two colors (Orchid and Aran) and on my way home I started working it into a solid granny square. What self-respecting "crochetaholic" doesn't travel with hook and scissors, right? My husband just shakes his head.

I thought a lapghan would be a perfect project for this yarn. It's well constructed and soft enough to use immediately. I can only imagine that it's going to get softer as it travels through a wash cycle.

Here are a few pictures of my squares so far and a link to a solid granny square tutorial!

Peace and blessings,


  1. I love these squares, they are very beautiful! I will definitely be adding them to my pattern list. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern and tutorial.

    I am so jealous I just ordered the same yarn for more money. Darn. I bought it for the KAL/CAL beginning September 09,2014. You can read all about it and register by going to my blog;
