I hope you enjoy my new design, Extra Lemon Square Blanket. This blanket gets its lovely texture by crocheting the lemon peel stitch in the round from the middle. I’ve added a bit extra by substituting treble crochet stitches for the double crochet stitches on certain rounds for that little something extra.

I used most of 3 Caron Cakes because I do love the self-striping yarn, but feel free to play with color or give it a try in a solid. This 35″ square is just right for a newborn baby, but you can also simply continue in pattern to make this blanket as big as you’d like.
