Betty Vintage Retro Style Traditional Granny Square Blanket

It’s great when you start the week following a weekend that saw the completion of a project. Here’s mine ‘Betty’. Betty is quite unique, in that, I only crochet with black yarn once a year when the light is really bright. This time I think I may have misjudged the situation as it has been overcast, damp, rainy, grey and plain horrible recently.

As with most of my blankets you can find Betty in both me etsy store here or my folksy store here.


The fun part - arranging and laying out the granny squares.
It’s very traditional and timeless, but they do say the old one’s are the best one’s.

I love your blanket. I have never worked with black but it certainly is very effective.

Lovely...just like an Amish Quilt , the black is essential in setting off the color.
