Triple Mitered #MG Baby Blanket

I love projects that are easy to take along and this ones really fits that category.  This 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 you hook size and just widen it a few more rows before working the straight size.

I like using self-striping yarn because it fun and easy to create color, but you can use any yarn to created your own custom colors.  The finished size is 33″ x 37″.
