Crochet Triple Mitered Modern Granny Baby Blanket
I love projects that are easy to take along with you and these ones really fits that category. This Crochet Triple Mitered Modern Granny Baby Blanket is worked in 3 separate panels using the Mitered Modern Granny technique, then is quickly single crocheted together. I made this quick blanket in just a few hours using Caron Chunky Cakes in Ballet Sorbet, but you could substitute a worsted weight yarn, match your hook size and just widen it a few more rows before working the straight size.
I like using self-striping yarn because it's fun and easy to create colour, but you can use any yarn to create your own custom colours if that's what you would prefer. The finished size is 33" x 37".
