Granny Stripes Baby Blanket

I have crocheted a baby afghan in the pattern commonly called granny stripes.  I have seen it many places around the internet, so I don't have a particular pattern link.  I used a baby yarn from "Big Lots" that is labeled as Hand Knitting Yarn For Baby Projects.  I chained the length I wanted, using a G hook, and then crocheted a 3 dc shell in every other stitch.  The next row was a 3 dc shell in the place between the shells, just like in a granny square.  I chose to have three rows of each color, with 12 rows of white between them.  I edged the blanket with a row of sc, followed by a row of sc, ch 3, sc.   

 

As always, look on my Sharing page to find where I link my projects.

Thanks for sharing- I am making a granny stripe Moses basket baby blanket at the moment and was wondering how to edge it- love the way you have done it. Very pretty!

Pastel colours are lovely - reminds me of ice-cream! Granny stripe is definitely on my 'to do' list.
