Sunshine Yellow Crochet Baby Blanket

I recently made this large crochet granny square blanket that I ended up gifting as a baby blanket to a pregnant friend of mine for her new baby boy. I rarely work in yellow but ended up loving it. It’s basically one large granny square, made from a variety of worsted weight yellows and cream/whites. At the end, there are a few rows where two sides are stitched in sc instead of dc (still in granny stitch) to start to create a more rectangular shape for the blanket. I was happy with the effect and it’s something I’m playing with more in new blankets.

Now that I’ve shared a little bit about that blanket, I want to take this week’s 52 Weeks Crochet Blogging Challenge to imagine where this crochet blanket will be years from now. It is my hope that the baby who received this blanket will use it frequently. It’ll get a little bit worn and torn and put through the wash many times. And maybe in a few years it won’t even be around because the baby used it so much. But if it is around, I’m hoping that it will be a little boy’s favorite blankie for a long time to come!

  1. love this baby blanket

  2. My grandfather always made us afghans in this pattern. He recently passed away and my husband and I just found out we are pregnant, so I want to make our baby a blanket like he always made all of us. This is the closest pattern I’ve seen. Do you have a link to the pattern so I can try to make one myself? Thanks so much!

    • Aw, that’s really sweet. So sorry to hear of his passing. I just made a large granny square, alternating the colors of yellow and cream/white as I felt like it going along.
