This is one of two blankets I made for my niece, Violet, and the one I gave to my sister at her baby shower before said-niece was born. Unfortunately I never got a picture of it (even though we live in the same house), so I finally got around to taking a picture of it a few weeks ago.
It’s made up of basic granny squares with two baby fingering weight yarns held double throughout. The border is a simple V-stitch border, crocheted using just one strand.

I mainly wanted to post this picture because, as of last night, little Vi Vi started crawling at eight months old. Yay Vi! Since it’s just now getting down into the eighties as far as temperature, she hasn’t had a chance to use either blanket I made for her.

Luckily babies don’t outgrow blankets as fast as they do sweaters.
