What could be more perfect (or easy) than a classic granny square blanket? We really love this pink/lilac/white combo, but Caron® has plenty more to choose from. Pick your favorite colors, then work a square or two when you’ve got a minute. In no time, you’ll be sewing them together into this lovely little throw.
Step 1
Project Note: One Skein of each yarn is needed to complete this project.
