Blanket: Nautical Squares


(Crochet * Stash-buster)


Yeah!  I finished the “Nautical Squares” Blanket! 
¡Ya terminé la frazada de Cuadros Náuticos! 



A patchwork blanket made with 88 granny squares.
Es una frazada formada por 88 cuadros de color sólido.



Each square has 4 rows, all in one colour.  In total, I used 10 colours: 4 blues (navy, country, light and bright), 2 greys, cream, white, red and orange. 
Cada cuadro fue hecho en cuatro pasadas, en un solo color.  En total utilicé 10 colores: 4 tonos azules, 2 grises, crema, blanco, rojo y naranja. 



Then I joined all the squares with simple crochet st, in navy blue.
Luego uní los cuadros con punto bajo en azul marino. 



The border is all navy blue…except for a little detail in orange.
El borde también es azul marino, con un pequeño detalle naranja. 




I made this blanket for my nephew, for the foot of his bed (and maybe for a nap). 
Esta frazada es para mi sobrino, como pie de cama (y tal vez para la siesta).

  23. It's gorgeous Ana and the nautical colours are just right. They remind me of those shipping flags that you see. The orange touch in the border is fabulous and works so well!

    1. Hi, Sharon. The border is granny stripes all around. The orange detail is the same as in the mosaic st (3ch+sc between the granny clusters) Check: http://lanasdeana.blogspot.com/2012/12/mosaic-scarf-pattern.html
