Pink Blanket of Granny Squares

Hello

“A change is as good as a rest” they say, so I was thrilled when my friend asked if I could make her another blanket for her baby but this time bigger to fit her cot.  Her babies cot and room is very subtle and neutral but there was a sparkle in her eye when she suggested something pink.  Now pink is always out of bounds as I am a purple girl, so I promptly went to select a few shades of pink to commence a blanket. I made my selection; bright pink, pale pink and oops a purple one but it did have a pink fleck in.

With my recent project for my boys involving larger time consuming squares I opted for smaller squares, plus I thought this would work better for a smaller blanket anyway.

I chose to do a granny square I did many years ago when I bought my first house and filled it with afghans.  A very simple granny square but very effective as it creates a “rib” effect by anchoring the treble around the post instead of using the chain at the top.  It is also very dense and warm.

I managed to get the blanket finished over Christmas and needless to say, she was thrilled to bits with it. It’s always a pleasure to make things when they are appreciated and always a pleasure to go and have cuddles with her little baby who is now crawling.

I hope you like it.

      Thank you for your kind comment. There is no pattern as such as it is an adapted granny square. Basically to form the ‘rib’ effect when you do the treble stitch don’t put the hook through the chain at the top of the stitch but around the entire treble of the previous row. I hope that helps. Please come back to me if not and I will try to come up with a more comprehensive description/pattern. If successful, I would love to see what you do. Best wishes
