Crochet Baby Blanket Pretty In Pink

Excited to share more baby blanket news.Baby Blanket Pink 2

Using the pinks from my recently acquired stash of yarn I set to work.
Pink Baby Blanket Yarn

These scrumptious squares make me think of sweet little fondant iced buns.
Pile of Squares It was easier this time as I was simply following the pattern I devised for the blue baby blanket so I just set straight to it and made a stack of squares for the outer edge. Centre SquaresFlower squares for the centre bordered with a simple treble 1 chain 1 border.
Granny Squares The simple border in turn surrounded by the old favourite.

Yes, of course I mean granny squares.Outer SquaresFollowing the granny style pattern I added a few more rounds in the pale pink, 5 to be precise, before attaching the little fondant fancy squares to form the outer border.Baby Blanket Pink And last but not least a couple of rounds of single crochet to finish off. There you have it, a matching pink baby blanket partner for the minty blue one made earlier.

Cherry BlossomForgive this random addition but I keep seeing so many wonderful photos from people’s gardens I thought I would share my cherry blossom with you too.

Every spring it gives a spectacular show of blossoms and is one of my favourites in our garden. Sadly these wonderful, but fragile, blooms only last 2 to 3 weeks, and if we get a spell of wet and blustery weather even that can be cut short! It was a bit late this year (a bit like my sharing this image with you) and has shed it’s pale pink petals for this year, so we will just have to enjoy the rest of the garden till it’s time comes again.

Happy hooking!!

    I know how to make the granny squares and solid granny squares but not sure of the flower pattern and border in the middle would be grateful if you could e/mail that pattern to me also did you sew the outer squares together or how did you attach them.Thank you love your blanket

      I have attached the pattern to an email for the centre flower squares. It is so long since I made this blanket but looking at the images again the squares are joined from the back using the front loop of the top of the stitch only. If you look at some of the close up images you will see that once turned to the right side the back loop creates definition around each square. The centre border is done using treble crochet in alternate stitches with x3 treble 2 chain x3 trebble into each corner. Hope this helps.

    Aw, I love your blankets! So sweet! And the colors are scrumptious and the squares are adorable.

    I just came across your little blanket and love the design… I started making a throw for my granddaughter and threw out the magazine it was in by mistake. I have about thirty squares finished and was thinking of possibly doing something like the design in yours. Any chance you could share the pattern with me. I am thinking of making it a little bigger… Any help will be greatly appreciated…

      I am so flattered that you have asked and would gladly share the pattern if I had one. I just made it up as I went along but I have had many requests for information so would love to write the pattern however time is a problem for me. I can email you the pattern for the flower sqare as I have done this before for previous enquiries. I do hope you share your finished blanket as I would love to see it.

    I love this blanket! My cousin is having a baby and I would live to make this for her. I just have no idea how to make the middle 6 squares, and way you can tell me how?

    Great blanket! I also love “little fondants” to describe the palette.
