Supplies:
J crochet hook
1 jumbo ball of each or about 3 of dark blue, 4 of grey, and royal blue loops and thread impeccable

All grannies are 4 rounds and dc
Here is the way I do grannies, You can o the grannies anyway you feel comfortable.

Round 1- magic circle, ch3 ( counts as first dc) 2 dc into the ring, ch2, 3 dc, ch2, 3dc,  ch2, 3dc, ch2 and slip stitch to join into the  top of the chain 3.

Round 2 Ch 3,2dc, ch2, 3dc ( this is your corner)into the same stitch, work remaining corners: *ch1, skip over the 3 dc from the previous round, (3dc, ch2, 3dc) into the same stitch; repeat from * two more times, ch1, Slip stitch to the 3rd chain for your beginning  dc.

Round 3- Ch 3,  work corner (2dc, ch2, 3dc) into the same stitch, work remaining sides:* ch1, skip over the 3 dc from the previous round, 3dc, ch2, work corner (3dc, ch1, 3dc); repeat from * two more times, ch1, slip stitch into the first stitch.


Round 4- Ch 3,  work corner (3dc, ch2, 3dc) into the same stitch, work remaining sides: *ch1, skip over the 3 dc from the previous round, 3dc, ch2, skip over the 3 dc from previous round, dc3, ch1, work corner (3dc3, ch2, 3dc); repeat from * two more times, ch1, slip stitch  to the beginning chain.

Okay so now that we all know how to make a granny lets go over how many we need of each square!

Make 5 Dark Blue Grannies


Make 8 Grey grannies

Make 12 Royal Blue grannies

The color change squares are a little more time consuming. MAKE SURE you secure and knot  in between rounds when you change colors! Also I find crocheting over my tails saves time!

Make 4 of the followig
Round 1 Dark Blue
Round 2 Royal Blue
Round 3 Grey
Round 4 Dark Blue 

Use the first photo to see the pattern to join them. Using  Dark blue yarn connect the 5 dark blue squares with these 4  squares. There are many ways to join, I put both right sides together and hdc. 



Make eight of these squares
Round 1Grey
Round 2 Royal Blue
Round 3 Dark Blue
Round 4 Grey

See the first photo to see the pattern of which to attach them and your 8 Grey  to your dark blue. Use Grey yarn to attach.


Make 12 of these 

Round 1 Royal Blue
Round 2 Grey
Round 3 Dark Blue
Round 4 Royal Blue

Using the 12 Royal blue squares and these finish your blanket!!! I used Royal blue to join.





 My edging




I used Grey and did 2 rounds of the 9 loop puff stitch 
( unfamiliar with the puff stitch? Insturctions for a puffstitch)
Then with dark blue I did SC around the edge with 5SC in each corner

Would you man, brother, or dad love this? What colors will you use? Comment below!

Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
