The Granny Square Collection: 14 Popular Crochet Patterns

These 14 patterns are easy, fun, and perfectly adorable.

The Granny Square is one of the staples in the world of crochet. But even though this is one of the most traditional patterns, it’s anything but old and stale. Granny squares change with the times, and today’s Granny Square embraces color and fun. The 14 patterns here are modern takes on this classic style. Get the details on all of them when you join the I Like Crochet Gold Club today!

It’s easy to think that Granny Square patterns are outdated and boring. It was, after all, the 1970s when they hit their peak in popular culture. But the great thing about the classics is that they’re infinitely adaptable. Just look to the ancient Greek text of the Odyssey for proof. The story may be 3,000 years old, yet you can see it in movies like Star Wars, and in books like The Hobbit.

Getting back to crochet, this new Granny Square Collection offers an exciting selection of projects that range from the adorable little Chase the Rainbow Baby Booties to the subtly sassy Postcards from Spring T-shirt. You can test your creativity with the stunning Fair & Square Argyle Top, featuring two types of granny squares, or have some fun with the super-cute La Plage Bracelet.

Aside from the fact that they look great, one thing that makes granny square patterns such classics is that they are easy to make. That means you can get beautiful results from these projects even if you’re new to the joy of crochet.

Each one of these patterns in I Like Crochet includes:

  • Complete stitch instructions
  • List of materials, notions, and hook size
  • Pattern and special stitch notes
  • Finishing instruction
  • Full color, detailed photographs of each pattern

So whether you are just starting out with crochet or your skills are the talk of the town, you get everything you need to make every pattern.

We’ve had the pleasure of featuring well over a dozen of Andee Graves’ patterns in the past several years. The Pronto Poncho is one of my favorites. The 100% Mercerized Cotton gives the pattern a lustrous and bright finish, while the open stitch granny squares along the neckline make this a casual but fashionable top you can wear for any occasion.

For something a bit more cozy on a cool evening, you can’t go wrong with the Throwback Thursday Jacket. This nod to granny squares of the past uses cream instead of black yarn to connect the squares. It’s a subtle shift, but the difference is striking.

Granny squares aren’t just for cool clothing. No outfit is complete without the right accessories, and these Vintage Granny Clutches, from Natasja King, are the perfect way to complete the retro look. This pattern takes advantage of contrasting coral and light grey yarns to create a dazzling set of two granny square clutches that are just the right size to carry your essentials.

For something more robust, the petunia and off-white Allons-y Bag is a colorful way to bring along everything you need for a day out. The soft handles make it comfortable in your hand, while the small wooden toggle is just enough to hold everything in, without overwhelming the delicate shifts in the thread color.

This is just a peak at some of the patterns in the Granny Square Collection. You won’t want to miss the Purple Passion Sweatshirt or the Corner Coffee Tank Top for some fun additions to your wardrobe. And again, because the granny square is designed to be simple, almost all of these patterns are good for beginners, but enjoyable enough for experienced crocheters.
