"Mateo’s Granny Square Blanket is a project I whipped up for a newborn li’l babe and of course I had to do some pics and video for the simple pattern so you can all enjoy it too. It’s a great way for a beginner to make some super neat work with an easy and free pattern. Doesn’t it look so neat and clean? I do love a cozy traditional granny – I wrote a blog post about 7 fun ways to granny! – but sometimes a clean look is what you’re after. I used a whip stitch join to make such straight seams, and very flat too. Plus, the whip stitch uses the tails, so fewer ends to weave! My preference is to work through both loops of both motifs, and I don’t cinch the stitches because I think they look cute when you can see them on the seam. I know many folks like to whip st through back loops only to get that line around the square, and I do sometimes use that method. But mostly I like to go through all loops for a more hand-stitched look. Hope y’all enjoy this one! Hashtags: #MateosGrannySquareBlanket #CypressTextiles"
