15 Free Granny Square Patterns To Crochet

Posted By Tipnut On August 17, 2011 @ 12:33 pm In Crochet | 3 Comments

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!
