To that end, I just really wanted to show off my newest baby blanket. I adore it! I made it for a really good friend of mine due with a "mystery" baby next month. Not knowing the gender makes buying a gift more fun, I think :) I didn't feel locked in to the whole pink vs. blue debate and just got to go crazy!
I just love the look of this style. It's my newest favorite, and honestly a breeze to make. If you're interested in making something similar, I found this basic granny square how-to really helpful in making this blanket. I followed this bloggers directions, changing colors where it suited me. Instead of stopping after a few rows, though, I just kept growing the square until it was the size of a baby blanket, about 32" x 32", then made a simple single crochet border around the edge.
Anyway, I hope this blanket will be well loved in the future! Addie got a crochet blankie from a family member when she was a baby and it gets dragged around with her everywhere. Not all kids do this, I know, but it's a sweet thought to imagine my work being loved by a tiny human. It's why I got into this biz, after all!
