Casual Granny Crochet Along (CAL) Colours!

granny CAL

There has been much interest in my Casual Granny Crochet Along   so i want to clarify some details for those of you that were interested in what yarn and colours i will be using in my crochet blanket. I am also listing more information below based on queries regarding the type of blanket you will be making (should you choose to make the blanket). The following information is for those who would like to make the EXACT  crochet blanket that i am making. There is no pressure to do this – use up your scraps, choose your own colours if you like. 🙂 And remember, this is casual, no need to make all the squares. Use them for a different project if you like, but please tag #casualgrannyCAL

Firstly, the colours for the Crochet Along!

Here is a list of what i will be using – keeping in mind this is an estimate. I will do my absolute best to stick to the amounts listed here. Colours will NOT change. Worst case scenario you will need an extra ball of something, but i will do i best to avoid that. 🙂
