There is only one design that is always fashionable – a granny square. Eye-catching and quick to make it is a wonderful pattern for all. If you are an advanced crocheter, you can make it as a rest from other complicated projects, if you have just started your crochet journey, it can be your first project to make. It is a good opportunity to use yarn scraps, so it is one of the less expensive blankets of all! Finished blanket measures 40″ x 55 3/4″ and one square is approximately 8’x 8′, but you can easily adjust squares to desire size. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
I’m an accomplished craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews on the topic of crocheting and other crafts. In my everyday work, I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new.
I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to making our crochet society bigger and more popular.
I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.
