Granny Square Baby Blanket

Baby blanket are such fun to make, and make great gifts too. This one was fun, and easy to carry along because I made the seperate granny squares and sewed them together at the end. It turned out beautifully! I shall post a pattern for granny squares shortly.

Find my granny pattern, and use that to make 36 squares. (You can make them solid colors, different colors in the center, or every other one like I did. It dosn't matter. Creativity is key)
Arrange the squares in whatever pattern you want. Makes sure they are in rows of six.
Using the same yarn as your granny squares, slip stitch the squares together, first in strips of 6. When you have done that, slip stitch the strips together. Be sure to keep it even and precise.
Weave in any loose ends, or cut them off.
Do one row of dc all the way around the blanket, to give it a nice, even, finished look. If its for a girl, I would suggest ruffles.
To make ruffles: in every other stitch: sc,dc, trip c, dc, sc. Do it in another color for a cool accent!
Hope you enjoy this baby blanket! Its so cute and easy, its practically irresistable!

Plese remember that this is my pattern. Do not sell this pattern or reproduce it in any way, shape, or form. This is a free pattern.
