I made this baby blanket for my sister in law who had a baby girl this March. This is a classic granny square continued for 22 rounds. I used this wool from Peachey Ethnits. Tiny Tots 50g wool. 5 balls in total-250g, Colour 948 Candy. I was not sure if she was going to have a boy or a girl so I chose this shade as it had blue, pink yellow and green in the wool. You can see it in the picture above.
I used DK Bonus wool for the border. I used the colours that featured in the wool. I Double Crocheted all around the border. A row in mint green and a row in yellow. The pink border was crocheted in a picot stitch. Chaining 5 and one DC in the 3 DC and continuing this all the way round. A blue border was intended to be added but I waited to see if it was a boy or girl. As you can see it was unnecessary as she had a beautiful little girl.
