Babies, unsurprisingly, are extremely fragile their first few months on earth, and so need the best care necessary to help adjust them to living outside their mother's snug womb. While mothers can't always be at their babies' sides to cuddle and reassure them (though most babies cry out loud and often for such pleasures), they can make comfy, warm blankets that serve as good substitutes.
In this crochet tutorial you'll learn how to crochet a granny square blanket. Granny squares are whimsical and very fuzzy squares made of variously colored yarn. While you can make them individually, stringing them together into a quilt or blanket creates an adorable cover up perfect for chilly winter nights.
