I have been wanting to make some things for Squishy but am finding it hard since we don't know Squishy's gender yet. I thought to stay safe for the next 3 weeks while we wait to find out that I would stick to making toys and homewares type stuff that I could make unisex.
First up I decided to crochet a quick blanket for the stroller. The stroller we bought is red so being anal about colour coordination I had to have something that would match. I chose red, teal and blue because I thought it could be unisex. Also, it goes perfectly with the red stroller.
I decided on a simple granny square blanket. I used a 5mm (H) hook and 8 ply yarn. I made a bunch of squares then lined them up inside the stroller and decided that 5 squares by 4 squares would be the perfect size. I love granny squares because once you have made them a couple of times they are so quick and you can make them while watching tv. I have so much more that I want to make for Squishy and am having loads of fun crossing things off the list. I just can't wait until we find out the gender so I can knit up some cute jumpers and sew some cute clothes.
