Cheerful Squares Baby Throw Reviewed by Holly Osterland on 2014-01-26 ****
I really enjoyed making this blanket. Used the bamboo/cotton and chose the Persimmon rather than blue for a gender-neutral blanket. I would use one size smaller hook next time as for me the gauge turned out a little big and the weave was a little loose. Put a small border around at the end to even it up. Be sure to count your stitches to keep the squares symmetrical. I had to re-do a couple of them. And weaving in the ends as you complete each square will make for less tedium when the blanket is done!

This was a very simple, but very time consuming project. I was unable to find the cotton bamboo yarn, so I substituted with Vanna's Choice Baby. I should have gone up at least 2 hook sizes with this trade, as the size g hook I used created way too much yarn tension. However, a little blocking at the end at least made the blanket flat. It is very difficult to have perfectly symmetrical squares (as is the case with most granny square blankets that require assembly) but adding a border and blocking can help make it look more uniform. Total time spent = approx 26 hours following pattern as shown.

I really loved this pattern! It was so easy and fun to do. The greatest thing about it is that you could add more squares to it later on.

I've been crocheting for ten years & was looking for an easy project that would match a baby's room. When I made each square they were not semetrical, no matter how many times I re-crocheted. VERY frustrating!Something is off with this pattern.

This was fun to make, although there was a lot of ends to weave through when I put it all together. Cotton Ease yarn was used and at the corners, I chained two all the way through instead of four.

I used cotton-ease in Cherry, Seaspray, Lime and Almond. A few sc rows in Almond were added as an edge, which it needed. I struggled with Row 2, as you can see in the close-up.

Otherwise, an easy, forgiving pattern.

I made this in LB Babysoft yarn. Used a G hook.
Pistachio, Lemon Drop, bluebell and cream. Edged it in bluebell because it,s for a boy. Several pictures are attached.

This was my first blanket and it turned out fantastic! I scaled it down to 9 squares and added a single crochet edge around the entire blanket which seemed to be the finishing touch it needed.
