The Ginny’s Grannies Sampler Blanket CAL will take place throughout 2020. We will be making a granny square sampler blanket in rainbow colors. The blanket has a fun layout inspired by a blanket from an old Better Homes & Gardens book my Grammy Ginny gave me. This first post will tell you all you need to understand how the CAL works and to get ready to make your blanket.

The Ginny’s Grannies Sampler Blanket CAL is a mystery crochet along. I have posted some sneak peek pictures in this post, but you will have to wait until the end to see exactly what it will look like.

There will be a post here at Jessie At Home on the 3rd Thursday of every month. The January post (this one) will include the supply list for the blanket so you can prepare. The February through November posts will start with any notes or useful links for that month, and the next portion of the pattern. The December post will show off some of the blankets you have made. I’ll find these pictures through your Ravelry project pages, so be sure to add your projects to Ravelry and link them to my Ravelry listing.

The pattern will be free here at Jessie At Home. If you would like to get an ad-free printable PDF, you can purchase that through Ravelry. At the end of the CAL it will also be available from Etsy. The Ravelry PDF will start off with just the supply list. As each portion of the pattern is added here, the PDF will be updated. All you will have to do is go to your Ravelry library and update your PDF. Each portion will start on a new page so you can just print the new part.
