INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES

1. Granny squares and half granny squares are worked with RS facing throughout. Do not turn work at the ends of rounds or rows.

2. Five granny squares and one half granny square are joined together to make each strip. A "join-as-you-go" technique is used to join the current square to the previous square. When working Round/Row 4, the current square is joined to the previous square by working a slip stitch in the corresponding corner ch-1 space of the previous square.

3. A ripple stitch pattern is worked across one edge of each granny square strip, then the strips are sewn together, and the ripple stitch pattern worked across the remaining unworked edge.

Hi - I just found out that my son and his wife are having a little boy and I'm anxious to make this Granny Stripes Baby Blanket for him -) I want to buy the yarn but you have no color listed for Contrast Color D...I believe it's the green. I love the colors shown and would like to know what was used for D. Thanks!
