Granny Square Bunny Rug

I made these granny squares from baby yarn so long ago now I'm not sure when it was, it must have been sometime last year. I think the colours are perfect for an Easter themed bunny rug, so I recently joined them together to make this baby blankie!

My mother gave me a large bag full of small balls of baby yarn, in lots of white with some pink, blue and yellow. There was also a tiny bit of purple and variegated yarn. I didn't know what I would do with it all so I started making simple granny squares thinking I would make a large rug. But I've recently decided on another project for the left over baby yarn so I lay the squares out and I had enough to make a 6 x 7 bunny rug. Only 2 squares didn't get used.

These granny square rugs are pretty simple to make, I'm sure you don't need me to explain how to do it! I chose to join the squares with sc, and then edged the finished rug with 3 rounds of sc. I kept the edge plain so as not to distract from the simple squares. I couldn't remember which hook I used for the squares, it might have been the 3.5mm so I used that for the joining and edge.

I like this one, I think I'll use it as a pram or cot rug for my baby boy <3
