Finished Size: 40″ square
This blanket will be hard to part with but it will be perfect to share with one of my expecting coworkers. Our school colors are yellow and blue which are prominent. It is comprised of 49 squares which I attached chain style with the denim colored yarn. I did an additional three rounds of double crochet around the border.
I tried several iterations of a white scallop border but I couldn’t get it to lie flat and it made the blanket too feminine to be a unisex gift.
These squares were a lot of fun to make from bright colors. I think pink and orange citrus slices on a purple background may be in my future.
