Knitting with Combined Crochet


I have almost finished my first combined knitting/crochet blanket. This was one of the most tedious of blankets to work on, but I must say, it sure turned out beautiful. I love the combination. Here are some photos of the process .

















I started with a basic granny square as the main block. Then, I knitted each side of the square. Next, I crocheted mini grannies for the corners; each individually sewed in. There is a lot of weaving involved in this project. I also crocheted a border around each square before sewing them all together. I will end it tomorrow with a blue border.
