Yep, I made a baby! A pretty cute one too. And a blanket, a pretty big one at that. Three years in the making, off and on. Probably more off than on. Now it’s all done, just in time for…Summer.
Size – about 275 x 230cm, big enough for a queen size bed
Squares – 72, each with 10 rounds, joined on-the-go
Border – Seven rounds of black yarn
Yarn – A mix of soft acrylics like Stylecraft DK and Panda Magnum Soft 8ply
Am I the only one who keeps a record of what they make? I have a list for crochet blankets and one for quilts.
This baby-size (pram-size really) granny square blanket is another I can cross off my to-do list. The coloured yarn is Stylecraft Special Double Knit, left over from my granny stripe and ripple blankets. The cream is Panda Magnum Soft 8ply which I think gives the blanket a warm vintage feel. I think I made all of the granny squares in 2012 but took my time weaving in the ends and adding the border. Happy to add this one to the “done” pile!
Finished size – 60cm x 54cm
Yarn – Panda Magnum Soft and Stylecraft Special DK
80 granny squares, joined on-the-go. Two rounds of colour, one of cream.
Border is four rows of cream.
