I have recently picked up my crochet hooks again. After having Caroline, I took a long hiatus from my favorite craft; but I’m finally back at it again. As you may know, I’m quite a fan of quilts. Problem? I don’t really sew. Consequently, I’m loving granny square blankets at the moment. I have big plans (and the yarn) for a really cute one, but I wanted to make a lovey sized baby blanket first.
You can find my pattern for this granny square blanket and make one just like it. I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream yarn; and while it’s not my first choice for a baby blanket, I have been wanting to get rid of some of my yarn stash for a while. On the plus side, it is a cooler fabric for sunny and hot Florida.
Overall, I’m quite happy with this project. The final result was a small but fun baby lovey that I think a baby will enjoy (thinking these might be my go-to gift for baby showers). Next time, I wouldn’t do the first 6 rounds in the same color. I think I’d like it with a little bit more variation.
