15 Free Granny Square Patterns To Crochet
Crocheted granny squares are a hit with crafters since there are so many different items you can make with them: blankets or afghans, scarves, potholders, wraps, totes…the ideas are endless! Here are several different designs to check out, use a single pattern for a project or mix them up as you like. I also added a helpful tutorial at the bottom showing you how to join them all together and another for how to make a flat border (for blankets).
You may want to bookmark this page for future reference since I’ll be adding new goodies here as I find them, enjoy!
