granny square sampler baby blanket

I finally finished weaving in the ends for this cute blanket. I totally want to keep it for myself, but as soon as I make a label for it, I am giving it to a coworker for his new baby girl.

The granny squares used were all from my 365 project, and I joined them using this technique with my favorite size H hook. I kept my yarn colors limited to shades of blue, green, purple, yellow, and white, and I think it kept this sampler afghan from looking as wild as the first one did.

The border was adapted from the #9 pattern in Around the Corner Crochet Borders. I left out a round of cluster stitches because it was using a ton of yarn, and I didn't have very much left of any given color. The green round features crossed treble stitches, and the border is finished off with a round of picot stitches.

I really hope the recipients like this afghan! It is so hard to part with that cute little kitty square that looks like Jim!
