2 "GRANNY TILES" BLANKETS


2 Mantas "Estilo Mosaico"



In my knitting club, we all fell in love with the “Granny Tiles Blanket”, that is, the blanket with granny squares that all have the last row in the same color. 
En mi club de tejido, todas nos enamoramos de la manta “Granny Tiles”, es decir, una manta hecha con cuadros de la abuelita al estilo mosaico, con la última pasada en el mismo color. 



So far, we have made four of these blankets.  Last year I showed you mine (Granny Tile Blanket @ Lanas & Hilos).  And now, I want to show you photos of two other “Granny Tile Blankets”:
Hasta ahora hemos hecho cuatro de estas mantas.  El año pasado les mostré la mía (Manta de Azulejos @ Lanas & Hilos).  Y a continuación les muestro fotos de otras dos “mantas mosaico o azulejo”:


1.  “Sweet” Granny Tiles (Mosaicos Dulces)
(Made by / Hecho por: Beatriz)


My mom made this blanket for a baby girl. 
Mi mamá hizo esta manta para una niña.



It is made with Tamm Bebe yarn, in 7 colors: light pink, strawberry pink, light green, yellow, blue, light grey and white (for the background). 
Está hecha con lana Tamm Bebe, en siete colores: rosado pálido, verde pálido, amarillo, rosado fresa, azul, gris claro y blanco (para el fondo). 



The border is made in sc in all colors, ending with white little arches.
El borde está hecho en medio punto en todos los colores, finalizado con unos pequeños arcos blancos. 



Since there was plenty of leftover yarn, my mom decided to make another matching blanket…
Dado que sobró mucha lana, mi mamá decidió hacer otra manta que le combinara, pero en otro estilo…



…A simple stripes colorful blanket, made with only dc’s, with a wide white lacy border. Maybe one blanket can be for the baby’s room and the other one for the carriage.
…Una simple manta de franjas de colores, hecha sólo con puntos altos, con un borde ancho calado en blanco.  Tal vez una manta pueda ser para el dormitorio de la bebé, y otra para el carruaje. 

I am loving this second one!
¡Me encanta esta segunda!


2. “Bright” Granny Tiles (Mosaicos Brillantes)
(Made by / Hecho por: Chichi)




My aunt made this blanket for a baby boy. 
Mi tía hizo esta manta para un niño. 



The background is also in white, but the granny squares are in bright colors: red, orange, yellow, green, grey, baby blue and navy blue.
El fondo también es blanco, pero los cuadros son de colores brillantes: rojo, naranja, amarillo, verde, gris, celeste y azul.

    1. Yes, I used a lot of colors from my stash in that blanket I made last year. The cream one in the background was the only one I had to buy. But I am in urgent need to use my growing collection of leftover yarn. Lets talk about ideas on how to do so...
