Let’s go for some non-themed crochet.
While major holidays are over for a bit, let’s do some generalized, non-themed projects. Of course, babies are a year round, indeed a lifetime, thing and need no special occasion. So, let us then explore some square baby blanket ideas to help the mothers among us keep our little ones comfy. Overall, there is no better blanket shape than a square, because it’s easy easy to make a cocoon, or just to evenly wrap or cover the little one. Moreover, a square blanket makes it super easy to securely tuck in the sprog in a bassinet, cradle or pram, without excess blanket hemming them in.

To begin with, this square baby blanket is super versatile. Since you can make it in any yarn weight, you can really vary up the look and texture. Moreover, if you use an ombre or gradient yarn, you will give it gentle, blended color transitions. In turn, these will greatly complement the crisply delineated textures.

However, in the flood of modern patterns, let’s bring the square baby blanket back to the 70’s with a new color palete. Indeed, everyone appreciates the granny stitch, especialy as a gift blanket. Why? Well, it works up very quickly and it’s not complicated at all. Thus, here is a classic granny in a slightly new form, where the white rows give it a more calm and integrated look. All the color rows, however, allow you to use up any stashed yarn you have.
