I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Granny blankets are great, they simply work as a crochet project. If they have a downside, it’s that their name matches their style. While that works for some, it is sometimes a little dated. This project is a modernized take on a granny baby blanket, that still maintains the appeal inherent to a granny blanket, but presents it in a modern, bright vibe. Please enjoy this great idea for a baby shower gift. A link the free pattern is at the end of the post.
