Inspired by vintage china crockery, these lacy granny squares are joined as you go for a quick and easy finish. 

This Pattern was saved for me by my mother…. Hi mam! 🙋‍♀️….. from Woman’s Way magazine Issue 11th February 2019. The Pattern credit is for Laura Strutt who is the author of ‘Modern Crocheted Blankets, throws and cushions’. This pattern I assume is from this book.

If I am wrong in any accreditation please do not hesitate to contact me to correct it.

This is one of the many Works in progress or WIPs that I have and is part of the 2020 Craft Challenge that I started.

I do love this pattern. Its been given a difficulty rating of 2 but the magazine, who must have been short on print space, didn’t allow for more in-depth instructions  in the pattern. After much ripping back and head scratching I decided to write out the pattern in a format that was easier for me to follow. I also sketched out a rough draft of the pattern layout.

I highly recommend doing this if you are having trouble understanding a pattern. Especially vintage patterns that assume alot of knowledge that has been lost over the decades.

My own work in progress

After figuring out the pattern I really got into it but because its the same pattern in each square I got bored very quickly and some other pattern caught my eye to make. This brings me to now. As you can see Ive worked up 35 squares. I still have 85 to do 🙈

If any one has made this throw I would love to see what colors you used or even if you had the same issues I had reading the pattern.

I will post an update and progress report on this throw really soon.
