Granny Squares Baby Blanket
Part 1:Granny Squares Baby Blanket: Square A
In the first class, we’ll focus on Square A, which is comprised of simple stitch combinations worked in rounds. Not only will you learn how to read a written crochet pattern and chart, but you’ll also learn how to switch colors and make sure you’re getting the right gauge. Once you’ve mastered this square, you’ll go on to crochet twelve more in exactly the same way.
Part 2:Granny Squares Baby Blanket: Square B
Now that you’ve tackled square A, it’s time to switch focus and learn how to crochet Square B. This square features a straightforward design, with alternating rounds of single crochet and double crochet. You’ll whip up twelve of these squares in no time, and then you’ll be ready to join them all together in the next class.
Part 3:Granny Squares Baby Blanket: Join the Squares
Once you have completed all twenty-five squares (thirteen of Square A and twelve of Square B), you’re ready to join your blocks together. Edie will show you how to expertly single crochet the edges of the blocks to make a gorgeous patchwork design. This is the exciting part, when your blanket starts to take shape.

This was my very first time working with crochet. The patterns and abbreviations were brand new to me as well and It took me a few tries to get the hang of making the base blocks but after I got it it was easy. Thanks so much for the class.

I liked this class very much. Ms.Eckman made it easy to understand the whole project. I finished the blanket in 3 weeks. This will be a surprise gift to my new granddaughter. It is not perfect but it came out nice.Yes,I would definitely recommend this class.
