Granny Square Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

January 16, 2018

I love most everything about crocheting. I love the creativity and feeling of accomplishment it gives me. I love all the pretty yarn I get to play with and the endless possibilities. But if there’s two things I reallllly don’t like it’s crocheting into a long chain and weaving in a lot of ends. And with this pattern… I did neither of those things!! Win-win!

The granny square is such a classic design and so many things can be made with just this simple pattern. I love that with the right yarn, this classic pattern can be made a little more modern. I wanted to keep the blanket simple and modern so I added a simple and solid border to finish out this baby blanket.
