C's brother and his wife welcomed another daughter into the world last month, little niece is now a proud big sister. Unlike my failed attempts to make little niece something I was determined I'd manage a little handmade gift for littlest niece, and I decided on a crochet blanket.
They knew they were having a girl, but I wanted to try and make something reasonably 'gender neutral', something just bright and happy.
A big granny square always fits that remit I think :)
A simple half double crochet border has become my favourite blanket border. I should probably get a bit more adventurous at some point but I really like to keep it simple.
