If you’ve been crocheting for any amount of time, you’re probably quite familiar with the granny square. We love the granny square in all its forms, whether it’s as a blanket, a cardigan, or even a hat! But we’ve never seen anything quite like this Mitered Granny Square blanket before, have you?
I love the modern twist this tutorial gives the old crochet classic! You start out with a regular granny square, but then you just work on expanding two sides of the square for the rest of the blanket.
The basic pattern is worked in two alternating rows: a row of connecting chains, followed by a more traditional “granny square” row of double crochet clusters of three. The end result is just stunning! This mitered granny pattern pops all the more by using Caron Cakes – or any self color changing yarn.
What do you think of this take on the traditional granny square? Let us know in the comments below! And don’t forget to share a photo of your finished mitered granny square blanket! As always, happy crocheting, friends!
