Last week I shared with you my crocheted giant granny baby blanket, and now I'm going to give you what is hopefully enough details so that you can make one too! The blanket is made of four giant granny squares, using Pattern A and Pattern B, which are just color variations of the same design. And then I crocheted a wide border around the joined squares to give the blanket a substantial feeling, and to stretch the little yarn I had to make the biggest blanket possible.
I'm sorry, I didn't measure this blanket before I gifted it, but I'd say it's about 120cm x 120 cm. I used Red Heart super saver acrylic yarn, and a size G hook, though of course you can use any yarn and the appropriate sized hook.

4 rows around in same dc stitch in grey
1 row sc around in red
1 row sc around in grey using aqua at corners and mid points of blanket
