Easy Granny Square Baby Blanket

Blogged under Charity Crafting, Free Craft Projects by Tammy on Thursday 16 July 2009 at 8:51 am

To give myself a break from baby hats for awhile but still have something baby-like to donate, I decided to make a super easy granny square baby blanket. Even baby blankets can take a while to crochet, but you have got to love the good old granny square pattern to make life easier. Here are the supplies I used:

I hook

1 skein of TLC Baby Amoire

1 skein of yellow Bernat Baby Yarn

1 skein of green Bernat Baby Yarn

  • I started my granny with 4 chain stitches before securing them into a loop using a slip stitch.
  • Then I made 7 rows using TLC yarn for the center square.
  • After that, I alternated with 3 rows of green, TLC, then yellow until I had two sections each of green and yellow, ending with a yellow section.
  • Finally, I used TLC to make a single crochet row to trim all around the blanket.

The final blanket measures about 36×33 inches, and it is super soft!

    Hi! When you change the yarn, how do you secure the loose ends of each color in the end? Do you weave it through?

    Hi Traci - I weave it. I do not knot unless I make amigurumi toys. There is a good video on how to weave in the ends here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vaY8S7y1Lc
