I designed this for a work colleague who was having her first baby. I didn’t know if baby would be a boy or a girl so chose these neutral colours.
I love turning circles into squares and I’ve provided 5 patterns for 5 different circle sizes so you can do it too. So much fun!
Each block is 6? or 15 cm when worked with 8 ply yarn and a 4 mm hook. The complete blanket is 35? or 89 cm across.
The pattern is available in both UK & US terms – just choose the one you’re most comfortable with.
I’ve included instructions for the joining method I used and also the border in the 15 pages of the pattern. I’ve also included close up pictures of each square and a special trick to make your circles as seamless as possible.
I used gorgeous soft cotton yarn. I am so glad I did – it feels divine.
Of course, you can easily make this larger by adding more squares.
