Follow-up Friday – Babyblanket “Wynter”

maRRose - CCC --- Baby Blanket Wynter-07aHurray for “Follow-up Friday” finished projects! And especially the ones that you’re happy with, like I’m with this one.

Not only am I pleased with how this blanket turned out – I’m also quite relieved that its initial pile of granny squares is no longer staring at me…….
maRRose - CCC --- Baby Blanket Wynter-03It all started when “Simply Crochet Magazine” released their “granny square app”, issuing one granny square pattern per week – for free! On a whim, I decided to join (more on that here), and truly enjoyed my weekly little task of crocheting a pretty square.
maRRose - CCC: granny square love/Simply CrochetUnfortunately they stopped publishing new patterns under the app all of a sudden, leaving me with aforementioned pile of pretty squares, 29 of them, and almost all of them in a different size.

Having dealt with this matter – the odd sizeness – before, when putting together my “Homely Blanket”, again I decided to first make sure they all had the same size.
This kept me nicely busy for two nights, after which the next decision had to be made: what to make with 29 squares. Three pillow covers? Or would an acceptably sized baby blanket be an option?
maRRose - CCC --- Baby Blanket WynterSeeing that a 4 x 7 squares lay-out looked really lovely, and made for a decent blanket size wise as well, the next decision had to be made.
With what color would I join my rather eclectic bunch? Going from light pink, to off-white, and dark brown I finally took the plunge and went for black. I guess a rather bold choice, but quite honestly: I love it!

So, here’s baby blanket “Wynter”, that saw its first beginnings way back in …… May of 2014!
