The pattern for the blocks are as follows:

Using a 5.50 mm hook and DK yarn
I used 400g of white and 400g of dark pink, 300g of light pink.


Gauge:

7 hdc and 5 rows = 2 inches


Pattern:

Each block without border should measure 10.5 x 12 inches
Each block with border should measure 11.5 x 13 inches.

Blocks

Make 6 white, 6 dark pink.

Row 1: Ch 36, hdc in 3rd ch from the hook and across. (35 hdc)

Row 2-30: Ch 2, turn. Hdc across. (35 hdc)

Ch 1, turn. 3 sc into the corner, sc in next 33 st, 3 sc into the corner, place 36 sc evenly down the side of the block, 3 sc into the corner, sc in next 33, 3 sc into the corner, 36 sc evenly back up the side. Join to first sc with a sl st. Finish off and weave in ends.


Granny Square Border For Each Block.

Join yarn in a corner space, Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc into the first corner. *{ch 1, skip 2 stitches, 3 dc into next st} repeat until corner. 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc into corner space* Repeat around block. Join to first dc with a sl st and finish off.

Finish off, weave in ends as you go


Joining blocks together:

There are many ways to join blocks together but for this blanket I wanted it to look girly and have a slightly open look about it so I searched for the best tutorial and found this http://carinascraftblog.wardi.dk/2009/06/granny-square-joining-tutorial.html


Border for entire blanket:

Using the same granny square pattern as the border for the blocks but going into each ch sp (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) into each corner. 3 dc, ch 1 in each ch space. I did 3 more rounds of light pink, 1 round of white, 1 round of dark pink. For the last round I did a double v stitch. A great tutorial for this can be found here:

  1. I love that idea! Are you going to make more appliques for the Fairy blanket? and if so, about how many? I want to start making one soon. I have to come up with an idea as to how I'm going to do it though. That's why I'm asking.

    2. Hi Gina,

      There will be 12 appliques in total, still 4 Fairies to come. This will be my 5th set of appliques. I am doing it similar to my Little Blossom's Blanket. If you look in the right column you will see the link to it.
