Hush Baby Granny Blanket

Posted on July 14, 2019

I picked up a lovely skein of hush pink Bernat Baby Blanket yarn for just a dollar at the local thrift store. It is very soft yarn and I used it to crochet this granny baby blanket.

I used the country granny dishcloth pattern to crochet this baby blanket. I worked the center start with the hush pink yarn and then used a scrap pastel skein of yarn for 4 rounds before switching back to the pink yarn.

I attached the hush pink yarn in the corner and ch 2, 2 hdc and then moved to the next side. Then once I came back around to the corner, I crocheted 3 HDC and ch 1 to attach to my beginning ch 2. I really like this method as you do not have to slip stitch across several stitches to reach the corner again to start the next row.

Added a scalloped edging of 6 DC between 2 skips with a sl st.

Here is a closeup of the scalloped edging I added to finish off the blanket. Finished size is 18 inches wide.

    How many of you use a crochet hook larger than recommended for blankets and why?

    @Myayra – I usually use a larger crochet hook than called for in a pattern to make the gauge bigger and the project looser.
