A Kid Size Crochet Granny Square Blanket

A while back (like two years ago!) I shared about starting these granny squares to create a blanket for miss E. I’m proud to say I finally finished it all up this past spring and just recently took pictures to share. I slowly worked on the squares. I think that was due to me putting them away and them becoming “out of sight, out of mind.”

I used the Pink Lavender pattern from the book 100 Colorful Granny Squares to Crochet by Leonie Morgan. I used cotton yarn by Lily Sugar n’ Cream. I know the yellow gold was discontinued, but you should be able to find similar colors to the others. I noticed they change the colors a lot or put out new colors that are very similar but slightly different to previous ones. There is another brand called Peaches & Creme (from Walmart I think) that I used as well towards the end. It was close enough to the same blue and white I needed. I’m probably the only one who can tell the difference though because I know. I used an H size crochet hook and each square came to roughly 6.5″ x 6.5″. I just kept making them until I had enough for the blanket size I wanted. I crocheted the blocks together through the back loops and in hindsight, I wish I had ended each square with the same color so the yarn I put them together with would have completely blended in. But I’m still happy with it. I didn’t worry about blocking it or anything to get it to a perfect shape.

I’m now waiting on some cold weather so I can feel more inclined to possibly start a grown up size granny square blanket. We shall see!
