Can’t find a link for the starting with a granny blanket. Can you send me the proper link please?
Hi Tracy, this blanket was actually based on the shawl pattern. You will find the link under the picture. Hope this helps!
I get it! It’s very easy to understand the pattern of starting with a granny …. Just make a whole granny instead of a half granny as you would for the shawl.Then do each round as indicated.
Thank you for the pattern.
