This beautiful granny square baby blanket was quick to make and the results are lovely
The yarn used for this project was Paintbox Simply Aran (100% Acrylic).
The colours used were: Washed Teal (232), Sea Foam Blue (231), Pistachio Green (224) and Banana Cream (220) (1 skein of each).
You can purchase this yarn here.
I used hook size 5mm.
I started in the middle with the heart in Pistachio Green. I found a tutorial on YouTube for the heart and found it surprisingly simple. I added Banana Cream around the heart
I then continued with two rounds of each colour – Washed Teal, Sea Foam Blue, Pistachio Green and Banana Cream – repeated this twice more except for the final Banana Cream where I did one row only.
I added a really simple border using Sea Foam blue – Double Crochet (UK) chain two and Double Crochet (UK) into same stitch.
- The final blanket size is 72cm x 72cm, you could make this bigger but you would need more yarn as this fully used up the 4 skeins.
