Inspired by the 2 squares that I made for the Square Along, I wanted to experiment and make a larger square. The squares that everyone is making and sending to Larissa, will be seamed together to form a blanket. I just don't have that kind of patience these days to put together all those squares, but I really enjoy knitting the square pattern. It's a very easy pattern like the Pinwheel Baby Blanket, except it's square. I wanted to make a blanket that was smaller than the pinwheel baby blanket. This square blanket is a 30 inch square, it would be perfect to use in a stroller. I love how this turned out.
I still have the ends to weave in as you can see on the right hand side. That's why the blanket looks a little bumpy because of the yarn ends hidden underneath.The blanket had to be blocked to even out the square, especially the center. The edging for the blanket is a simple garter stitch.
