Granny Square Baby Blanket

I’ve always wanted to make a baby blanket. They’re soft and pretty and small, so they work up quick. But I’ve never had a baby to make one for, until now! Someone I know is expecting, and I couldn’t resist grabbing the crochet hook.

For the baby blanket I decided to use the square pattern, but make one giant square instead of a patchwork of small ones.I did broad stripes of pastel yellow and lavender, and for the final touch added a fringe. I’d never done a fringe before, and I thought it would be time-consuming (like working in the end pieces) but it was rather fun and quick. Here’s a picture of it on my bed, so you can see the size:

I’m rather happy with how it turned out 🙂
