Last time I promised you the pictures of the finished blanket I had made for my son. And I finally managed to take some photos.
It was pretty rainy and cloudy here in the past several days, like instead of spring, autumn was coming.
For this blanket I used one of my favorite granny squares Rosie Posie Grannie from the lovely Cherry Heart blog.
I already used this pattern several times, for this pillow, this and this.
I really, really love how this blanket looks like, like pure happiness…

Many of you asked me how I had joined the squares and made the border, so I decided to make those tutorials too.
I grabbed my crochet hook, bought some pretty yarn and made a complete new Primavera flower blanket and at the same time took the pictures for the tutorial. As always, there are plenty of step-by-step pictures, and you will not have any trouble joining the squares together and making the border.

It’s finished! Finally! It took me 14 days to make this baby blanket. A lot of time. Of course I didn’t crochet all day long, but still… My plan was to make 8 squares a day, and I stuck to the plan, but It took me more time then I expected to join them and make a border.
A border… It’s a long story… I spent hours on Pinterest, in search of perfect border, and found some really pretty edges, but it seemed that no one wasn’t suitable for this blanket. Then I decided to make the same border I made on my Primavera flowers pillow, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked on the blanket. Something wasn’t quite right. Then, I made a little change, added two rows before those bobbles, looked at it, and knew it was the perfect edge for my blanket. Then, it took me ages to finish the border…
I used 100% cotton yarn 125m / 50 gr from St. George. This time I used yarn called “Golf” (except for yellow and pink – they’re “Tango”, also from St. George) “Golf” is a little softer and silkier then “Tango”, and I love that.
The blanket is composed of 80 squares just like my Teddy bear baby blanket (8 x 10) and it measures 86 x 70 cm. I joined squares with single crochet.
I’m willing to make free tutorial for this Primavera flowers square, so if you’d like me to do that, please let me know in the comments.
