Join the squares, I created 90 squares and joined them as I went along, but you can use your preferred joining method. I then created a few rounds of a single crochet border to give this blanket a nice modern finish.

This granny square crochet baby blanket was given as a gift for a friends baby. I did create two more of these blankets in larger sizes for my sons and let them choose the color schemes.

My older son likes the retro granny square blanket look and went with an orange, brown and yellow color scheme. I added a round to each square in this blanket, so each square is slightly larger.
