I am excited to have my second grandbaby on the way. This, of course, means I need to get busy so this little one will have a soft blanket when he or she is born. Since we do not know which one we are getting, I decided to use bright, cheery colors. I am using Caron Simply Soft yarn in a granny square design. I know that I want to make 6 squares and I couldn't really find the perfect pattern so I decided to make one up. Once the blanket is complete, I will post the pattern.
I started with a simple circle that I squared up on rows 7-9.
I made the mistake of forging ahead without securing the tails. I certainly know better, but sometimes it is hard to stop when you are on a roll. I will definitely have to pay for this later. I decided to complete all 6 squares as I go rather than waiting until one square was finished to start the second one.
On row 10, I added a decorative surface row by using post stitches and trebles in previous rows. I will continue to post as this project continues.
