Last summer I was gifted 2 skeins of variegated Red Heart soft yarn. I started out making it into a baby sweater, but it just didn't seem to look right. Since it was a gift to me, I wanted to turn it into something special. This is what I came up with. This blanket has been donated to the local pregnancy resource center.
The pattern is simply made up of 12 granny squares. I did 5 rounds of variegated, 3 rounds of white and 1 round of pink. After I sewed the squares together, I did a row of sc in pink around the entire thing, and finished it with a round of reverse HDC.
I like reverse HDC for edging blankets because it looks good, and is way easier than reverse sc.
If you have never used it, give it a try.
I do HDC, ch 1, skip a stitch, HDC in next st, ch 1, skip a stitch,etc. It is worked right to left, rather than the usual left to right.
This is the square pattern I used.
