"The Building Blocks Baby Blanket is a perfect pattern for playing with color! Use Loops and Threads Colorwheel yarn or your favorite worsted weight yarn to mix and match as many colors as you'd like. This fun play on a classic granny square is called the block stitch, and I have a right and left handed video tutorial to get you started along with the free crochet pattern. This pattern requires at least 450 yards of worsted weight yarn (approx. 90 yards of 5 colors recommended) and an I/5.5mm crochet hook."

Wow! Such bold colors. I love this. I note that this is a baby blanket project but I can see this as a full blanket. I would be really hard pressed to improve on the color scheme the designer came up with. This is beautiful on so many levels.

I love these bright and cheerful colors with a hint of hippy dippy in them. I would love to make one of these blankets. It would be perfect for me to use as a car trip blankie. A one skein per color blanket. I like that concept. I cant wait to play around with the colors and make mine.

The colors on this Building Blocks Baby Blanket are very vibrant and pleasing to look at. Any baby would be for the better having this colorful blanket to cling to. I love the project begins with the magic circle and the extension of one color into the next row makes another layer of texture. Great beginner project.

Even though this is basically a simple granny square, using the Block Stitch instead of the usual groupings gives this a nicely structured look. The designer provides easy to follow text directions as well as instructional videos for both right and left handers. The only even remotely tricky stitch is the Picot used on the trim. I love the bright color changes for every round, too.
