Check out these gorgeous photos of this pink and yellow granny square crochet baby blanket

This beautiful granny square crochet baby blanket was made for my very good friend’s baby, Daphne.

Created with one very simple granny square, using two alternating colours and then backed with some fabric. I love it so much. The yellow and pink are a gorgeous combination. Similar to this other baby blanket.

The granny square technique is so simple and requires little effort as you are working into previous rounds and don’t have to count much.
