This baby blanket is, as most of my projects, a gift. One of my cousins and her husband are expecting a baby in July, and it was the perfect opportunity to crochet something! Though let’s be real, when you love to crochet, just waking up in the morning is reason enough to pick up a hook. So, I went yarn shopping (woo!!) and got to it!

Here’s the deal, I have LOADS of cousins. I married into an enormous family. When added to my medium-sized family, I ended up with a ginormous group of funny, fireworks-loving, let’s-party-for-whatever-reason-and-eat, kind of family. So if you find several posts that begin “My cousin is having a baby,” know that it is not one cousin birthing enough babies to play for every team in the World Cup, but one of my 50+ cousins adding another to the amazing brood.

Alrighty, now that that’s covered, let’s talk about this pattern. Lately, I’ve been obsessing over Granny Squares. I’ve made several Granny Square blankets in the past, but I wanted something just a little different. A while back, and a whole blog ago, I posted about a pattern by Fiber Flux that featured a giant Granny Square design. I crocheted several blankets using that pattern, and gifted them all. Everyone loved them so much, that I though I’d design a giant Granny Square blanket of my own.

What you’ll need:

Yarn: 2 Skeins of Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn; 1 in Denim, the other in White.  

Hook: H, 5 mm.

Additional materials: Scissors, & needle (any needle you can fit your yarn through will work).

Optional: Stitch markers. Tag/Label.


The pattern makes a square blanket.

I used half a skein of each color to make this baby blanket. If you use the entirety of both skeins, you’ll have a larger baby blanket/toddler blanket.

Sizing:This pattern makes one lightweight baby blanket that measures approximately: 34.5 inches squared (87.6 cm squared).
