So many people say to me that they find random colour placement difficult so if you are one of those people you may find this method useful!
This baby sized blanket was made up of five round granny squares using five colours. I used the colours in the exact same order for every square but just used a different one of the five to start. You end up with five grannies all different but it's a great way to make them without having to stress over which colour to use next because it is always the same order.

I used Scheepjes Colour Crafter in
- (and Sint Niklaus for joining)
Once I had made those five grannies I made four more carbon copies of each of them so I ended up with 25 squares.
The next thing to do is arrange them so that each row of five grannies contains a different last round colour. It's a bit like a crochet sudoku! I decided to make an extra row to make 30 grannies altogether so once again just made 5 more grannies in the same colour order and then placed them in the same spots as the first row. I'm not the best at explaining things so here's my layout so that you can hopefully see what I mean!
The squares are joined together with Sint Niklaus using the join as you go method on the sixth round. You can find a video tutorial for this joining method on my You Tube channel. I then did a few rows of DC and finished the blanket off with Attic 24's bobble shell edging using Tynaarlo
