QJ - Giant Granny Square Afghan




I made this afghan -

In 1976 -

As a GIANT granny square -

From a bunch of yarn scraps -

I made sure that each round was the same color -

And just kept going until it was HUGE -

The last few rounds took whole skeins of yarn -

It covered the top of our bed at first -

Then our daughter used it on her bed -

You can see it at the top -

Under everything else - ;))

QJ - 1976


  1. I did that too! But in the late 80s. Mine's approximately 7 1/2 feet square, depending on if you measure at the corners or in the middle :)

    1. Mine's about 8-1/2 feet square - big enough to cover a King-size bed - and I beat you by about ten years - haha - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
