I made this baby blanket for a friend of mine. It's a very basic pattern. I only used Half Double Crochets. It's definetly a pattern a beginner could do. I used a K hook and used a foundation chain of 24. This baby blanket is made up of 12 squares. Each is 9 inches by 9 inches. I made 3 columns and sewed them side by side. Each column will have 4 squares. Just change colors when you reach the 9 inches.
I added a very easy crochet trim on this blanket. All you have to do is alternate *1Double Crochet in the next stitch, and 2 Double Crochet in the next st.* Except for the corners do 3 stitches in each one.
