Finished up this baby blankie last night. I crocheted it with various brands of worsted weight acrylic yarns (RHSS, Impeccable, Vanna's and Bernat) and a 'J' hook. It measures 30" square.
It's a giant granny square worked with a color row, white row, color row, white row, and so on.
The border is 1 round of sc in the ch-1 space, ch 3, sc in the next ch-1 space with (sc, ch 3, sc) in each corner space. The 2nd round is sc evenly around with 3 sc in each corner ch-3 space. The 3rd round is ch 4, skip next sc, dc in next sc, ch 1, then it will be (skip next sc, dc in next sc, ch 1) with (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in each middle sc of the corners. The 4th round is sc in each dc and ch-1 space around with (sc, ch 1, sc) in each middle dc of the corners.
For the finish, I wove a 1/4" a ribbon through the dc, ch 1 round. The ribbon was tied into a knot before I tied the bow. :)
