Bev's Old Rainbow Blanket

Now there is a story behind this one!
When I was in college, a girl in our dorm taught some of us to make granny squares. I knew none of the names of the stitches or anything. Just how to make granny squares! Hey! It's a start. I decided one day that I was bored making grannies so took that one stitch that was big (found out later it was a double crochet) and make rows of them in many colors to use up my yarn stash!
This blanket is the result. It is not in brand new shape now, but it is warm and cosy and is on the back of my recliner after 38 years! Best of all--it is incredibly easy to make in any size you want. Enjoy!
Crochet hook Size H (5 mm)
255 (this will create the height... makes it
about 6' tall, so if you want it for a baby chain about 130)
Repeat Row 2 until the blanket is wide enough.
Change colors whenever you want, even mid row--it will be lovely no matter what!
