Rainbow Granny Blanket...Not Yo' Granny's Granny Square
To begin, I purchased one skein of Michael's Impeccable yarn for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and Violet. I started by making a Granny square and just kept making it bigger and bigger until it looked like I had used up almost all of the yarn. Then to finish it out, I single crocheted my way around until the yarn was gone.

Row 1: chain four and slip stitch into first stitch to make a loop.
Row 2: chain three, double crochet three times and combine first chain and 3 DC with a slip stitch (first cluster); chain three; double crochet four times, SLST (second cluster); chain three; double crochet four times, SLST (third cluster); chain three; double crochet four times, SLST (fourth cluster); Slip stitch into top of first cluster
