Granny - Granny

I love a good granny square afghan. Saw this rug from Kasthall in House Beautiful and was rather astounded. It is a printed granny square rug. Check it out here


Here's what the website says about it.... 
"Karin is a wonderful printed rug of wool and linen. During her free time, our chief designer Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg crocheted a blanket using leftover yarn from the Kasthall factory. The classic crocheted squares have a nostalgic air, and new technology has made it possible to transfer the pattern onto our woven rug Rita. Karin is one of our personal favourites and is named after Gunilla’s grandmother, who also loved to crochet. Karin is available in two beautiful and carefully selected colour combinations."

Ingenious.

If you are granny obsessed, you may find this interestingHere's how. Love it.

Doing that sampler project is how I learned to crochet. I have my second blanket in the works now. This winter I want to try to design one with inspiration from my carpets....we shall see!

You are sooo correct! It is an obsession, indeed. What a beautiful work of art. You made my day, thanks. lol

Granny squares are my favorite, so I got incredibly excited for a second when I thought you'd done this to your house. That is incredible! (And now I want some granny flooring...)

hmm... does Anyone make any Cotton Fabric with that design? I could use a few yards worth as a table cloth at some of the craft shows I do. Or, even just to quilt it along side a crocheted one!
