The more I have been crocheting though, the faster I am starting to become. Practice really does make perfect.
Instead of making a bunch of granny squares and attaching them as a quilt, I decided to create one giant granny square.
I am giving the blanket a stained glass effect by crocheting in a fun color for two rows and then crocheting a singe row of black to separate all of the different colors.
I started with a light with the basic colorway of green, purple, blue, and pink. I then chose a light and and dark hue of each color. For pink and purple I have three different colors. Any color and can be used in this design, the idea is to add as many colors that look nice together as you can. A rainbow would also be an amazing color scheme option. If you have a lot of hues in one color, and ombre stained glass granny square blanket would be phenomenal.
Here is my work in progress. Still haven't decided on a border but when I do I will make sure to share the whole pattern from beginning to end. Keep and eye out for it cause it is going to be a long one.
