The fourth instalment of our latest crochet along 'Grandmother's Footsteps' is here. This traditional granny square blanket is made up of simple granny squares in cream and bright colours. It is suitable for those with a bit more crochet experience.
This part shows you how to make the corner triangles. These are joined to the corners to complete the blanket's rectangle shape. They are worked in just the aran shade.
If you missed out on parts one, two and three then do not worry, you can still download them here.
You can still get hold of the exclusive yarn colour pack for just £32.99. The pack includes all the yarn you need to crochet up your own Grandmother's Footsteps blanket.
