Whether you're currently expecting a little one or you know someone that is, this Baby Granny Square Blanket is the perfect pattern to make. Choose any three colors of Red Heart With Love Yarn to work up this granny square afghan. We love the precious pink, white, and yellow for a baby girl, but this particular crochet pattern is super easy to customize for a baby boy by simply using blue colored yarn. The afghan itself is made up of two simple crochet granny squares that are joined together at the end.

Notes

1. Blanket is made from 25 squares worked in joined rounds with right side facing at all times. 2. Squares are joined together as shown in Assembly Diagram and edged in rounds. 3. When joining squares, take care not to work too tightly. Squares may pop up a bit in the center; this is an intentional feature of the blanket
