I saw this sweet photo on Pinterest and immediately wanted to have a granny square blanket for Bijou's room. Despite the name, she's in love. The two of us aren't always in agreement on clothing (e.g. pants under skirts) and interior design choices (e.g. tween magazine tear outs taped onto the wall) so it's fun to be in agreement on this one.
There is no need to be a Granny to make this one. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the male voice in the You Tube tutorial I selected to accompany this post. However, if plugging in your credit card number is more your thing (no judgement, seriously), I found a few of my favorites on Etsy to share.
If you want to take a stab at making your own granny square blanket, this You Tube tutorial I found is quite helpful. I find that the key to tackling something new is to follow along sloooowly with the tutorial video. I stop, and start, and rewind a whole bunch. Try not to be discouraged if you mess up and need to start again. Practice makes perfect!
