Another Granny Square Blanket

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

I have crocheted yet another granny square baby blanket and this one I am happy to say I made for my nephew and his wife who are about to become parents to a baby boy in November.  I did not use the usual baby blue colored yarn because the last blanket I made was blue for my niece.  I wanted to try and use a different color combination and I like the green and yellow yarn that I used.


I enjoy crocheting granny square blankets and I never get tired of making them.  To make a granny square the post is HERE.  To make the blanket you just keep crocheting until the blanket gets big and I usually crochet 25 to 30 rows.

I added a border all around the blanket using the single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches.

The yarn that I used to crochet this blanket is Lion Brand Yarn in the color 170 Pistachio and Lion Brand Yarn in the color 160 Lemonade.

Sunday was the baby shower and it was so much fun to see family and to play baby bingo and other games and to see all the cute presents being opened.  I am looking forward to when the baby will be born.

I am on Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.

  1. Hi Julie,

    Such a sweet combination of green and yellow! When I first clicked on to your page, in the address bar, I saw ''granny'' and thought ''granny APPLE" and even though I was off, I have to say that in the end, the shade of the green yarn, at least in the photos, DOES resemble the colour of a granny smith apple! Don't you think so?!!

  7. Thank you for linking up at "Link & Share Wednesday!" I've never made a granny square blanket - it looks like it would be a very relaxing project to undertake for the wintertime hours :) Thank you for sharing! Rhondda

  8. That's a cute blanket. Green and yellow look very pretty together. So far I've only made baby blankets in one color, but I should definitely try some combinations.
