Granny Square Crochet Baby Blanket Patterns

If you’ve ever started to crochet an afghan and then given up because of the sheer size of it you’re going to love today’s collection.

These granny square crochet baby blanket patterns are GORGEOUS but they also come together way more quickly than a full sized afghan.

So whether you’re expecting and want to make something beautiful for your own baby, or you have a pregnant friend and you want to make her a thoughtful baby shower gift these blanket patterns are just what you need!

Don’t forget that once you find a granny square design you like you don’t have to just make a baby blanket with it. You could keep going for a full sized afghan, or make a pillow cover or even a storage bag for the nursery!

Circle in a Square Baby Blanket

I love the color combination used in this “circle in a square” crochet pattern. Work it up in cotton and it’s a fabulous choice for a summer baby. It feels gender neutral too so a good choice if you don’t know if the baby is a boy or a girl.
