Crocheting a granny square is an easy task. In fact, it’s a pure pleasure.

If you are a newbie, first go to my beginner granny square patterns post and learn how to crochet a granny square or follow a step-by-step tutorial on a solid granny square.

If you are already an advanced beginner familiar with double crochet clusters, just pick one of the basic granny square patterns  or granny squares patterns for intermediate or advanced crocheters and you are good to go. However, regardless of your skill level, it may get a little bit complicated when you are making a granny square blanket. Nevertheless, when you are crocheting a classic granny square pattern or solid granny, often the most difficult task is to arrange the colors of your squares and of whole blankets as well. 

If you are making a granny square blanket in a single color with each square the same, you don’t have to read further. However, if you are planning to crochet a granny square blanket full of colors, a color pattern generator is a great help. It will not only create a harmonized mosaic for you but will list the colors and even the name of the color of yarn you are to use in each row.

My favourite Granny Squares generators

Granny Squares Color Pattern Generator in Stylecrafts Colors

My one preferred color generator to recommend is the granny square color picker by Witty Crafts Design. You can choose how many squares your blanket will have in each row and how many rows you will go with. 

This generator works with the  Stylecraft colours yarn palette, but many other types of yarn have an analogous color scheme.

Use this generator if you:

Are using Stylecraft yarns or yarns with a similar hues pallette


You need ideas which color to choose for your blanket.


The more colors you choose, the more colors you will get in each square. The generator is limited to 8 colors.

Below are examples of how the generator works in warm and cool color combinations.
