Well I finally finished the granny square baby blanket!
After weeks of making 25 squares, I then did a final outer round in cream on each square.
I know there’s a bit of debate as to which is the best way to join crocheted squares. Personally I think it is much quicker to crochet the squares together than to sew them (however sewing does give a smoother result). So I crocheted all the squares together and did 2 rounds in cream round the joined up 5×5 squares.
Crocheting the squares gives a ridged look on the back but I think this adds interest the blanket.
So the blanket is now waiting to be wrapped up and delivered to its new little owner – welcome to the world baby Will.
