    Here is what I've done so far with granny squares...not too bad looking and loads of fun to do...also keeps from wasting small bits of yarn left over from other projects. :) I don't believe in wast! ROFL

    As you can see I created the granny squares and then added borders so as to make all (total of 40) GS the same size. Then I started this "throw" by single crochet of 118 stitches for several rows, then added a different color (coral) for one row to create the bottom part of this throw. The granny squares are divided so I wind up with 8 rows each having 5 GS in them with 4 SC rows between. (I'm actually stitching (with needle) two sides of each GS and crocheting two sides of each.)

    Here is my granny square completed. It is only large enough to cover oneself while watching TV. It turned out quite warm too. :)
