  1. can you keep going on these and make it into one continuous blanket? or is better to make lots of squares to stitch together?

  6. I was looking at a blanket my aunt made a long time ago and my mom told me it was made from granny squares. I'd never crocheted before (I do knit and finger knit though), but I decided that I wanted to learn how to crochet granny squares. Many restarts and an hour and a half later - with the help of your youtube video - I've completed my very first granny square! Thank you SO much!!!
