3 reasons Granny Squares are my go to for baby blankets.
Granny Square Baby Blankets…
are total baby gift lifesavers.
Granny Squares are beautiful, simple and flexable. I use them when I’m in a time crunch, but still want to give something handmade.
There was a time when I didn’t love them so much. The 70’s had some awful granny square designs. That was mostly the fault of yucky yarn colors.
The key to a beautiful granny square blanket is choosing colors that work well together.
The yarn chose me…
Bright colors aren’t my bag, but this isn’t my blanket.
While I was walking through the store, not thinking about yarn at all, I saw this yarn out of the corner of my eye. It screamed my sister in-laws name at me. Clearly, I had to buy it.
It is super bright. Like burn your eyes.
Why granny squares are da bomb:
1.) Autopilot Simple- your hands can crochet away while your mind gets to chill or whatever.
2.) Descriptively Good Looking- Granny squares look like you’ve done more work than you really did. People will think that handmade gift took forever. It’s ok to let them.
3.) Flexibility- You can crochet one big one. A bunch of little ones. A wild mix of both. Endless possibilities. Fuck yeah.
