A co-worker asked me to make a baby gift for her nephew who was having a baby. She asked for grey and minty green colors. I worked up a simple granny square blanket and used the join-as-you-go method for this soft and sweet baby blanket.
I used Caron One Pound Soft Grey Mix and Pale Green; and Red Heart's Soft White. I did 6 squares across by 8 squares down, and added a simple hdc, shell edging followed by a round of the green in hdc. The blanket measures 30"x40".
I added a simple stockinette stitch hat. A FREE pattern is available at the Yarnspirations website here. I went with the newborn size.
