** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

~ baby blankie 20b ~
Finished up this granny square baby blankie last night. I crocheted it with various brands of worsted weight acrylic yarns - Red Heart, Bernat, Loops & Threads, Vanna's - and it measures 30" square.
For Rnd 1 of the border I joined with a sc in the corner, ch 4 and sc in same corner. (Ch 4, sc in next ch space) all around with (sc, ch 4, sc) in each corner. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc.
For Rnd 2: sl st into ch-4 space, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in same space, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc - which is called the 'open-shell stitch') in each ch-4 space around with (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each corner ch-4 space. Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.
For Rnd 3: sl st into next dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 space, sc in next 2 dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 space, ##sc in next dc, *sc next 2 dc together, sc in next dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 space, sc in next dc. Repeat from * across. Sc next 2 dc together, sc in next dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 space, sc in next 2 dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch-2 space. Repeat from ## 3 more times. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. End off.
That last round was a little tricky to write out - if you have any problems, just let me know.
Thanks for stopping by - have a great day. :)
