This is a really easy blanket to whip together as it is just made of one giant granny square. I would make one of these large enough for an adult but I have found that the large you crochet a single granny square the more likely it is to lose some of it's shape.
That being said I expanded this particular square to 33 rounds to as to make a decent size baby blanket for a member of my family that is having a little boy soon.
I used Caron Simply Soft yarn for this blanket, It is one of my favorite yarns to work with because of how shiny and soft it is. The colors do really just pop.
The colors I used were Taupe, Medium Country Blue, Sunshine, and Bone.
I used one skein of each of the yarns and still a bit of each left over.

After I finished up the blanket I decided to add an edge to the blanket as to give it more of a defined shape. This was pretty simple and it really adds a nice decorative touch to the blanket. With a granny square you have your groupings of three stitches and your gaps.
