This is our new go-to baby blanket to crochet! It’s got everything we love about the granny square – working in the round, using double crochets so the project works up nice and easy, plus this can easily be completed in an afternoon!

I just love the look of this blanket. It’s more than your average granny square, it’s got the color changes and the little pops of contrasting colors that almost make the finished product look like it was stitched together. This look is achieved by doing one row in a contrasting color, and then continuing with several rows of a different color.

The only stitches you need to know for this project are double crochet and chain! That’s it! Talk about the perfectly easy pattern to memorize and whip up in an afternoon. Just pop in your favorite movie or current show you’re binging on Netflix, and get to crocheting!

It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of all things granny square. From the Pandora’s Box granny square to this chic granny square cardigan, we’ve pretty much done it all! Go ahead and check out the latest granny square project below, and don’t forget to share photos with us of your finished product!
