Grannies Square Blankets

Posted on November 25, 2018

Another Ravelry member of our Warmth for Warriors group introduced me to this Grannies Square blanket pattern. The pattern from Doug Speeckaert features a repeating 2-row granny square pattern which looks great and lays flat. The free crochet pattern link to the pattern can be found here.

In this next photo of the center, you can see how you do a traditional granny square type stitching and then the next row is a fill-in row of double crochet stitches. I think this really helps to allow the blanket to lay flat and not ruffle.

The pattern works nicely for using scrap yarns for each row and then I crocheted a few rows in the same color of yarn to create my blanket. I also used two skeins of Red Heart Stripes in latte stripe for the first blanket. I crocheted both of my blankets to a lapghan size for use by Veteran’s in wheelchairs. Both blankets are 32 inches wide.

Here is one more blanket crocheted using this blanket pattern. I call this lapghan blanket Blues Grannie Square.

For this lapghan I used just one skein of Red Heart Stripes in colorway polo stripes. I crocheted a row or two in the Stripes yarn and then used a skein of RHSS in blue to fill in the blanket. I finished with 5 rows of the pattern in the RHSS blue and did one final row of single crochet stitches to complete the trim.

So in closing, I love this Grannie Square blanket pattern. I definitely will be crocheting more blankets using this awesome pattern.
