Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • double crochet
  • whip stitch
  • joining colors
  • I would call this an advanced beginner!

Pattern Description:

Granny squares are making a HUGE comeback! With good reason! This gorgeous blanket will be loved by any boy or girl!

Not your typical, pastels or rainbow colors, which I still love, but a stunning grey and crisp white color palette!

Perfect for the modern mommy and baby! Two shades of grey and crisp white take a retro classic to today's baby! A lacy border is not to feminine as to offend the manly senses!

I am not permitted to provide instructions for the crochet edge as it was taken from a wonderful book Around The Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman. A simple crochet edge is suggested in my pattern or you can certainly add your own crocheted edge!

It measures approx. 40" L x 32" W.

Great size for the crib or toddler bed as well!

A must for the colder weather and very useful for the chilly air conditioned spots as well!

Great for the car seat! A must for the crib! Super to have baby on the floor! NOT JUST FOR BABIES! Toddlers will love this too! A terrific snuggle blanket!

Use in the crib or bed, at the park for a picnic, or in the car! Great for going to Grandma's, taking a nap or story time at the bookstore! Perfect for a photo prop!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 40" L x 32" W.


  • crochet hook size H (5.0mm)
  • 355 yards (325 meters) each skein. You will need 2 skeins white; 1 skein light grey; 1 skein medium. Any worsted weight (4) yarn will work!
