I started with 3 clusters then went up the side of the first cluster and just carried on going round and round. I wanted just to do clusters, no corners as such just grannying along without having to stop and join or sort out a corner. I aim to use up all those 'tiddly bits' of wool so when I've finished the red I'll choose another colour and keep on grannying along.
In order to keep it flat, which it is doing so far, I just pretend I'm in a corner and do 2 clusters joined with 2 chain to get me nearer to the next cluster. There's no maths involved here. If it won't granny straight away, call it a corner then carry on. That's the theory anyway.
I wonder what shape it will be when I've finished it? Will I finish it? Will this be another blanket! Is this free form crochet? Stay tuned.
