Daisy Blanket


(Crochet * Stash-buster)




A baby blanket in granny squares with a daisy in the center.
Una manta de bebé hecha con cuadros de la abuelita con una margarita en el centro.





All daisies have white petals, and a yellow center.  The flower then is turned into a granny square.
Todas las margaritas tienen pétalos blancos con el centro amarillo. La flor luego se convierte en un cuadro de la abuelita.



I used medium yarn from my stash (Caron Simply Soft), in the following colors: baby pink, bright blue, mint green, sage green, baby blue, hot pink, orange, turquoise, lavender y lilac.
Usé lana mediana (Caron Simply Soft), en los siguientes colores: rosado pálido, azul brillante, verde menta, verde mediano, celeste, rosado intenso, naranja, turquesa, lavanda y lila..




Finally they are all joined together with a final row in white.
Al final, todos los cuadros se unen con una última pasada en blanco. 




The border is also white, with a touch of colour (using the mosaic or brick stitch).
El borde también está hecho en blanco, con un toque de color (usando el punto mosaico o ladrillo).



Final Measure: 95 x 95 cms, with a total of 25 granny squares + border. 
Medida final: 95 x 95 cms., con un total de 25 cuadros + borde.

  4. Awesome piece of work. A Daisy Blanket is on my to-do list, too. But since there are no babies in sight (except the one of a friend with unknown gender for whom I'm making a ripple) I will have to wait to give it a try.

    Did you use a Ravelry pattern or where did you get the instructions?

  31. I love the blanket, but would love to see a pattern for the border. I've made the squares many times in the past, but yours is the prettiest border I've seen and I'd love to know how to do it.

    1. I am glad you liked the border :-)
      First I used the MOSAIC ST. I shared the chart here:
      http://www.arteenhilo.blogspot.com/2012/06/3rd-granny-blanket.html
      And the final row is the same as the one in my STUDY BLANKET (but with sc instead of the Dc´s)

      I hope this helps,
      Happy crocheting,
