Wore my Granny Square Coat again today to a VW Show at BODELWYDDAN Castle......
got stopped again lol.
I will definitely be making another one for next winter and thought the MINI HEX might be an option....still thinking though.
Crumbs!!....I need a hair cut.
joined the mini hex's with a grey Aran weight....my favourite weight yarn and a 5mm hook.
Not sure if I want to make the next coat with a navy or black though.
But I quite like the mini hex..colour without too much colour.
Oh! I love it! I keep pinning pictures of Granny square coats with all intentions of making one but still have not gotten there yet! I think I will make creating one a summer project ( of many! ) when school gets out! This way it will be done in time for Fall wearing!ReplyDelete
Thanks it certainly gets commented on and so often people want to chat about crochet too...love that. Look forward to seeing you in your coat don't forget to show us all.Delete

Hi I got the comment in my mail thanks for the input, yes a agree a hex is a better 'shaper' motif than a square.Delete
I think the mini hex would be perfect for a coat. Similar enough that it will be the same showstopper, but different enough that they don't appear the same. And I think it would be a great shape to experiment with fit (because it's got a sort of curve opposed to the straight square shape of the grannies)ReplyDelete
I think so too....will try a few possibles before making my mind up though.Delete
So you wore your lovely granny square coat! I can imagine that you would be stopped! You are probably doing what others would like to do, but haven't dared! Have you seen Cate Blanchett in her giant granny-square dress? I actually didn't like her colour scheme, you could give her a few tips in colour coordination!ReplyDelete
hehe...certainly a show stopped heheDelete
Thay have used GS for so many projects not all work though lol
Wow! What an wonderful coat! I love it!!! I just started to make one for myself, see the start on my blog! I hope to finish it soon! How you did the sleeves? it's always a puzzle to find the good shape! Love from Holland! LindevrouwReplyDelete
Hi..Thanks I wear it all the time and it doesn't bag at the bum either been washed and looks great after washing....real pleased with it comfy and not too warm for warmer days...I was nervous about wearing it at first but I have had nothing but a positive reaction so far.lol
I love that coat and the colours you've used are great. I like the idea of using navy in the next coat, I wear a lot of navy. I really like that it's unique and a real statement piece :)ReplyDelete
Hi thanks....I agree a dark one, navy or Black as a back ground colour is definitely one to add to the list.Delete
We could do a CAL hey? lol
oooh! just had a thought what about a royal navy ? or a teal Blue?....I can see a wardrobe full of them HEHEHEE!Delete
Very beautiful your coat, wishes Armi from FinlandReplyDelete
Thanks I certainly wear it a lotDelete
You look great in that amazing coat. I think hexagons would be great especially if you did not use half hexagon's to created a straight border, the wave the hexagon makes would create a lot of fun at the front opening of the sweater.ReplyDelete
Does that make any sense at all?
Hi thanks. Great minds...lol, I was thinking the same a wavy edge some where.Delete
Your coat of Many colors is very very pretty.. Hugs JudyReplyDelete
Thank You, wasn't sure when I was making it if I would wear it, but I wear it all the time.Delete
LOVE it Sue!!ReplyDelete
Hi..thanks Kris, a favourite in my wardrobe now.Delete
Lovely coat. Didn't know there was a VW show at BW. We usually go to the classic car show. We went this year and had the usual windy but good weather.ReplyDelete
Hi...thanks, got stopped several times at the show, yes its been going for a bit I'm sure, been a couple of times.Delete
