Introducing the Granny Square Baby Blanket. This pattern is your chance for a bigger project using much loved granny square! I’ve always loved crocheting baby blankets, the satisfying feeling of making a blanket without it taking weeks or even months. So if you’ve never crocheted a blanket before this is a great project to get you started.
After getting to grips with crochet the first ever blanket I crocheted was a giant continuous granny square, I made this blanket for my Grandma using different shades of purple yarn, her favourite colour. Whenever I crochet granny square blankets now I always think back to this project. Granny squares are very nostalgic to me.

Alternative Yarn Suggestions
To make the Granny Square Baby Blanket using an alternative yarn I suggest the following three yarns, all of these yarns can be purchased on Love Crafts. I always recommend doing a gauge swatch whether you are using the same yarn used in the pattern or an alternative yarn.
