Around and Around – Ginny’s Grannies CAL Part 3

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Around and around we go! Time for the border of the inner section of the Ginny’s Grannies Blanket CAL. This is a great part to make while binge watching your favorite show. It’s very simple, and I love the look it creates. If you want a baby blanket, this is a great place to stop, and if you want a couch throw, you can finish to this point with a thicker yarn and larger hook.

Find all the details and additional links about Ginny’s Grannies HERE.

This stitch is also known as the doubled chain 2 (dch2), and a tutorial can be found HERE.

  • Chs and sl sts are not included in Round/Row counts unless specified.
  • Most Rounds end with a sl st into the first st that was made in that round. “First stitch” of the next Round is the st that was slip stitched into.
