Squares are so commonplace and routine, we’d become blase about them if they only weren’t so infinitely variable, beautiful, useful and fun.

As such, we just can’t get enough of them, and we hope you can’t either. So, without further ado, here are some wonderful classic-ish colored squares that are sure to get your crocheting juices flowing while making these square blankets.

The button blanket uses a traditional color-on-pale-background square with some lovely voids to set a wonderful, multicolored background for buttons at the line intersections. The buttons surely give this blanket a tactile, jaunty surface that highlights its colorful backdrop.

Emma Square Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

The Emma square pattern is a similar idea, but the color runs right to the edge of the square, so that in a blanket, the colors would be immediately adjacent. This gives you the possibility of making very definite borders between squares of different colors, or a wonderful monochrome design. Of course, you can intersperse a different joining yarn for that grid square effect too. The link to the free pattern is under the photo.

  4. Thank you for sharing these lovely squares! I hate to call them Granny Squares because they are so much prettier than the Granny Squares from 40 years ago. Love the new variations!
