Not-so-granny granny square

My quick baby blanket project is finished!

I saw a cluster of a few pastel shades of Simply Cotton Sport together in the office and thought they’d make a great baby blanket.  My first crochet attempt is one of my favorite blankets on our couch, so I decided to use the same basic oversized granny square but change up the colors and stripe sequence.

My favorite part of this blanket was the edging.  I crocheted until I hit about 40″ square, then decided to be finished.  There’s no binding off!  I just went to the end of my round, made a slip stitch joining the border together, and it was done.  Magical!
