The first thing I made my nephew Ralph before he was born, was this crocheted granny square baby blanket, made from 5 different colours of Patons Fairytale Colour 4 Me DK which is 100% Wool. Patons have now changed this to Fairytale Dreamtime DK.
I used cream as the base colour, along with orange, lime, pink and blue for the other granny squares. Each square measured 5 inches, and I used a 4mm crochet hook. I used one pattern for the cream squares and one for the coloured ones. I crocheted the squares together using more of the cream colour and finally added a border in cream too.
