Poppy Granny Square

I love this granny square. The simplicity of this square makes it perfect for an easy baby blanket or birthday gift. I named this square after my youngest daughter who we have nicknamed Poppy because she was so small when she was born, like a poppy seed. She was not premie, but she was barely 6lbs. And even today as a 16-month-old she is still in 9–12-month clothes. It looks like she is going to be fun sized when she grows up.
