Sunburst baby blanket No. 2

Hello fellow crocheters,

IMG_1451

Here is my second sunburst granny squares. I really loved the colors and wanted to use them together.

This is my second blanket in this pattern. You can look at the first one in pink and teals here. The original pattern for this blanket is available for free here.  Last time I just the join as you go method but this time I went for the classic seamless join by attic 24. I really preferred the join-as-you-go because it saves so many ends to join in. But initially I wasn’t sure how many squares I was going to put together. So this method worked really well for me.

  1. This is lovely as all of your other projects. Did you consider using shades of green instead of grey/black? Might have made it look livelier, **IMHO**.. don’t mean to criticize.. this is great work anyway. Keep it up!

    1. Hello, Thank you so much for the tip. I will definitely try to use that combination in the upcoming blankets. I love yellows and greys together but greens I’ve thought about before but never materialized. 🙂
