A Granny Square Blanket in Polymer Clay
The Afghan Cane consists of sixteen polymer clay “granny squares” assembled in a grid, much like a crocheted afghan would be. Unlike the crocheted version, though, we don’t have to create sixteen individual granny squares to make a colorful blanket. Through the magic of polymer color blends, we can generate a multitude of differently-colored squares with a single cane!

Feel free to substitute your own favorite colors. Try to choose fairly vibrant colors, as all of the color-mixing we will be doing will tone them down somewhat.
You will also need a package of White and a package of Black.
- Work surface, such as a marble tile, ceramic tile, or plexiglass.
- Pasta machine
- Clay blade
- 1.75-inch square cutter (optional)
