Pinky Granny




Pattern:  Paton's Stained Glass Window
I've gotten several comments that this link isn't working, but it always works for me for some reason.  If you can't get it to work, you can find instructions on YouTube HERE and another one HERE. I've also added a written rectangle granny pattern at the bottom of this post.
Yarn:  Hobby Lobby ILTY (Less than 8 oz of each color). 
Colors I Used Lightest to Darkest:  Soft Pink (lightest), Pink, Old Rose, Dark Raspberry (I think...I don't have the label anymore), Aubergine (darkest).  I abandoned some of the colors I used in the center round of colors so I didn't list those.  They just didn't work.
Hook:  Size H
Size:  38" x 52
Edging:  Filigree Edging by The Garden Bell, R1:  sc all around, R2:  (sc, ch 5, sc, ch 7, sc, ch 5, sc) in same sc, ch 4, skip next 5 sts, repeat around.
Changes to Pattern:  I only chained 47 to begin on this one because I knew I was making it smaller than I normally do.

I'm starting another one!
I'll give you a peek when I get a few rounds on it.
Later...

  17. Now isn't that just one of the prettiest large grannies! And the border suits it well. You are a tad like me, I could have a zillion borders at my disposal and I still don't think I have found the one I want to use. The border looks like little flowers, just the perfect touch to finish off this lovely piece. Hey.....all the photos are showing up!

  29. Has to be one of my favorites of yours in a long time. I love the border you picked too. I think I've done that one before actually. It looks great and goes fast. Can't wait to see your yellow one and then a blue was it.

    Finally, posted. I was getting emails worrying about whether I was alive or not. Just busy as you know.

    Off to check in with others.

    I got the instructions for this afghan from yarnspirations and it doesn't look the same.Is there a way to get this afghan that I can print out? If it's the same,instructions,sorry,I'm still learning and I love the colors in this one.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Anonymous: It is the same pattern. You just use the pink colors and make your color changes as I have done. You can easily see by looking at my photos how many rounds I do in each color. If you want an email with the pattern attached so you can print it, you have to leave me your email address. Is this Risa? I can't tell. It only shows anonymous.

  47. I've updated this post and listed two separate YouTube links with tutorials on how to make a rectangle granny. Some people are saying the link isn't working, but it always works for me. I don't know what the problem is for those of you who can't use the link. I hope the YouTube links work for you.
