Here is the second baby blanket that I’m working on for friends! The color scheme is also gender neutral (apparently no one is interested in finding out the baby’s sex before the baby comes), and my friend, M, also wanted a combination of yellow, green, and taupe. However, M really wanted pastels, and C (Baby Stormageddon’s mom) loves bright colors, so I got an assortment of yarn colors to crochet from.
I really wanted to do another granny square blanket, and decided to take some inspiration from my Crochet Challenge blanket. I really like the look of solid color granny squares, and now that I’ve found another way to connect them, they’re probably my all-time favorite pattern! Before, as much as I loved granny squares, they were always a giant pain to connect at the end of the blanket. But now that I can connect as I go? Perfection!
So, here’s what I’ve got done so far! The entire blanket will be 5 rows in length, 5 columns in width. Each square is a 6″ square, so the end blanket size will be 30″ x 30″. Plus whatever I add for a border, which will add a few more inches each way. I’m really excited to see how it turns out! Plus, I’ve bought some minky fabric to back it with, and I plan on crocheting another owl applique! Who doesn’t like a little baby owl on a blanket? Not me, that’s for sure!
