15 Glorious 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!

    I can’t believe the generosity of all those who provide free patterns. If not for this, I would have no access to some of the most beautiful designs out there!

      I learned on my own when I was in my 20’s but I was thinking that if you could go down to the senior center if you have one there in your city and ask there at the desk that maybe they know one of the senior ladies knows how to crochet and they could help you, like show you how to do it. If you lived in my city I would help you.
