Funky + Fun! DIY Granny Square Blanket

When modern art and classic crochet come together, the results are stunningly warm, cozy, and eye catching.

What can you crochet that’s easy, colorful, and classic? One of our absolute favorites that fits all three of these requirements in the New Easy Granny Blanket. This blanket has it all: the cozy comfort you expect from a visit to granny’s house, and the vivid colors you want to chase away the chill on a cool night.

You won’t find any boring colors in this 38” x 35” blanket. Tanya Eberhardt brings us a spiced-up version of the granny blanket tradition with granny squares of various sizes and colors to give the blanket a patchwork feel. The layout is interesting to work and the border really brings out the excitement of the pattern.

The Merino wool, microfiber, and acrylic yarn give the New Easy Granny Blanket a soft, luxurious feel that’s right at home on your couch, a favorite chair, or the guest bed. Personally, I like to curl up with this blanket on my lap while I’m working on my next crochet project. You really can’t go wrong with this eye-catching update to a classic.

The pattern includes:

  • Complete stitch instructions
  • List of necessary materials, notions, and hook size
  • Pattern and special stitch notes
  • Finishing instructions

One thing I love about the New Easy Granny Blanket is how complicated it looks, even though it’s quite easy to crochet. And you don’t have to stick to these colors, either. You could go for earth tones if you want something a little quieter, or go modern with neutrals and black.

And if you’re new to granny squares, we also have a complete tutorial on the “epitome of the awesomeness of crochet.” Learn how to start a granny square, select the right hook, decide on colors, and the all-important step—blocking. Discover the Secret to Great Granny Squares has all the crochet insider tips and tricks to help you get started and get creative.

Here’s something interesting about both the New Easy Granny Blanket and the granny squares tutorial: Neither of them are from recent issues of I Like Crochet. That’s right. We had to go back to 2018 for both of them. There’s also the Paul Gauguin-inspired Tahiti Blanket from 2017, or the vibrant and colorful Scrappy Shells Blanket from 2015. In fact, there are more than 60 blanket patterns in our back issue library, which you have instant access to with an I Like Crochet Gold Club Charter Membership.

And that’s just blankets. Our back issue library includes dozens upon dozens of scarves, amigurumi, home decor, and more. In all, the I Like Crochet Gold Club gives you more than 700 crochet patterns and articles; step-by-step instructions for patterns; video tutorials and full-color photographs for details about projects and stitches. All for just 23¢ a week with your Charter Membership!
