Remember this vintage granny square afghan? I've completed 12 squares for my retro-ghan! These squares are much faster to crochet than traditional squares where you change colors every round. Because the yarn used for this retro-ghan is multi-colored, you can just keep crocheting with the same yarn until you're ready to crochet with the border color!
Most of my multi-colored yarn is only 1-5 years old and is the newer, softer version of acrylic. The one vintage yarn that I'm using is the Sayelle in orange tones. I bought 3 skeins at Faith's yard sale a few years ago. I believe it was in her Grandma's stash. It's crunchy, stiff and atomic! I love it because it resembles the yarn in my sample-ghan from the 50's.Atomic (probably radioactive) Sayelle
Check out other grannnies on the Granny-Along blog. They are all fantastic!
