Such a sweet granny square baby blanket. The gender neutral colors with the purples and greens make it the perfect gift for any baby shower. Any baby should fall right off to sleep being covered and swaddled in this blanket. Granny squares are so easy to make and allow you to adjust the size you want your blanket to be so easily.

Very beautiful afghan and the color combination is so ccalming and relaxing. It helps a lot that the pattern is just right on the same page. Thanks for this.

Started making this beautiful blanket but found that the colors as written in pattern will not give you the purple look, you will end up with the pale green as your last color of each square. I just added and extra round of the Lavender blue to each square ( which makes the square a bit larger but that's okay by me). I just love the purple as shown in the picture and already had the first 14 squares finished and wasn't going to start over. Just a FYI for anyone making this.

Thank you for that information, I am just getting ready to try and make this beautiful blanket so glad I saw your comment before I started.
