Alpaca granny square blanket by Sandra Juto of Sweden

I’ve just fallen in love with this crochet blanket by Sandra Juto of Sweden. This is the fifth and final of these blankets that she’s made, and you can find it for sale in her shop.

Curious to discover how the squares were made, I found Melbourne-based Tamara’s blog and her idea of what the pattern might be. So I’m using this pattern to create the cream & green baby blanket. I love it so much more than a standard granny square, and it’s a lot more interesting to crochet.

In case you haven’t already noticed, I’ve uploaded a couple of tutorial videos to the tutorials page: how to make a granny square.

Keep an eye on this page, as I’ll be uploading more tutorials on basic crochet stitches, how to change colours, etc very soon!
