Errata: typo in the pattern : make 12 strips of 12 blocks each. The total amount of completed blocks should be 144 and NOT 124 as noted on the pattern.

The pattern was inspired by my daughter’s room make-over. She wanted to add some colour to her mostly black room. As her theme is mostly grunge/industrial, with a full wall painted in blackboard paint, we decided that something similar to paint splashes/graffiti would be perfect.

The pattern is ideal for beginners that have mastered the basic granny, and would like to try a different, but still basic, square.

This pattern will teach new crocheters how to join a block in the corner with a htr, as opposed to the more traditional way of using slip stitches to get to the corner.

The border is a variation of the basic granny stripe.
