Granny Square Blankets

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Friday, February 22, 2013 Categories: ,
I'm currently working on a granny square blanket for my hubby who requested that I make him a dark brown and light brown blanket that is big enough to cover all 6 feet and 4 inches of him.  So I've decided that I'm going to crochet a bunch of granny squares and then sew them together to form the blanket.  I'm using Red Heart's buff, coffee, cafe' latte, and Aruba sea yarn. I've got a long way to go!  I made a similar blanket for my daughter to match the theme of her nursery. For Krissy's blanket, I used Caron's Simply Soft's soft pink, pistachio, chocolate, and bone.  I also made a ladybug applique for her blanket. I think I'll make a submarine for my hubby's blanket since he's a subby.

Here's my progress so far on my husband's blanket:

Here's my daughter's blanket:
