Cozy and Colorful Drunken Granny Blanket

Amazing Drunken Granny Baby Blanket

At least my grandson thinks so. When I completed this baby blanket and took it to my daughter’s house to take a few photos, my grandson grabbed it and started snuggling.

The yarn is very soft, and it is just the right size to snuggle in.

While I made this using a solid color today, it would look lovely using different color combinations. I would make the color changes at the end of the row.

The yarn for this project today was a medium weight yarn; however, if you are a lover of chunky blankets, I bet this would work using a bulky weight yarn too.

If you love the look of the granny stitch crochet patterns, we have a treat for you. We have made a few baby blankets using the classic stitch and a modern crochet granny blanket.

This pattern is beautiful and I would love to make fullsize bed throws for my 2 little girls, how long of a chain would you recommend starting with? I am very new to crochet, could I basically just double what you already have?

Hi Tracie, If they are sleeping in twin beds, doubling the starting chain would work, it gives plenty of drape over the sides. This blanket measures Finished size 26 inches X 35 inches. and doubling it would make it quite large. Otherwise, if you didn't want it to drape over the side, maybe make it just a bit larger. To make this in your desired size, adjust the width, use multiples of 5 + 4. Hope this helps. Casey and I would love to see what you make, tag us in social media if you think of it. Take care Vicky
