You can make this Fast Fair and Square Baby Blanket without any trouble as long as you follow this tutorial. You will make the simple square motifs using two colors for each, which will be a combination of denim, sunflower, and white. You will love the squares separately but, once the crochet baby blanket comes together, you will love it even more. The colors chosen for this afghan are neutral, almost masculine shades but you can change out one, two, or all three colors to use your own hues of choice.

Love the look of this baby blanket and love the combination of the colors denim, sunflower, and white and the way they work together. Very cute. This blanket looks more like it would be for a baby boy, but I could see this used for a girl also with the yellow mixed in. Girls like denim too, so start them young.
