Thanks for such a lovely and straightforward explanation. I especially love the colourful pics!


I would love to subscribe to your blog...I am so enjoying looking through the projects, tutorials, etc. The link does not seem to be working, is there another way to subscribe? Thank you

Dear Lucy. I used my woodland pack to make a mini solid granny squares blanket. It is about five foot square. I wonder what border you would suggest, and any tips for neatening the bits where the squares join, and avoiding ‘wavy edge syndrome’? I usually go down a hook size for my borders. I don’t want to spoil it with a rubbish edging. Thanks.

Sue Stern

Can these squares be made a little bigger ? Thank you.



Love this tutorial. One question though. I've watched videos for thos pattern and for the corner it's 2 trebles into the corner, chain 2 and then 2 trebles, then continue working in the chain along the edges. In your 1st corner you have done chain 5 (1 treble and chain 2) followed by working 2 trebles into the corner and then trebles along the edges. When you do the next corner you have 2 trebles into the corner, chain 2 and then 2 trebles. My query is - in the first corner it seems like you're just doing chain 2 and then 2 trebles. Aren't there 2 trebles missing. Maybe I'm missing something here


Great tutorial, thanks for the write-up. If you're interested, you can join our Granny Square design competition.


What a great use of yarn scraps & such a simple square pattern too. Thank you for the tutorial & wonderful use of the tails for stitching them together. I had not seen this before.
Your colorful posts are always inspiring & I so enjoy your happy commentary. May God bless your talent & give you many years of glorious crochet enjoyment!!💗

I am making a bunch of little granny squares right now. I didn't look here first, I just remembered you had written about them. I worked the yarn ends into the squares, but now I see I should use them to stitch the work together. Doh!
Thank you so much for inspiring all this hooky goodness and bringing yarn and hook back into my life with all the color and design fun you have here on your blog.
I may just join up to one of your CAL's one of these days.
Thank you again for the beautiful work you produce and the great tutorials! I have shared your blog with fellow hooky friends!

Hi Lucy
Just had a lovely day with friends who wanted to learn to crochet. We did a few samples and your solid granny square. We had lots of laughs and reverse crocheting. Thank you for the tutorial. Have a coffee or 2 on us
Luv Karen

Hi Lucy
A few friends had a get together today. They wanted to learn to crochet so we did a few different samples. I also have blanket of the solid granny squares which they all wanted to learn, with many laughs and lots of reverse crochet they finished with a square!!!!! Thank you for your tutorial. You will have a few more followers from today. Luv Karen
Please enjoy a couple of coffees

Please could you tell me roughly the length of yarn required to make each one? Trying to calculate how much I need for a blanket design I have. Thanks.

Carla Nell

i love granny's and I love your site with really great patterns....thank you....

Hi Lucy, I've just been looking at your solid granny square blanket which is really lovely.I think that will be my next project. At the moment I'm just finishing a single bed granny square blanket. Each square consists of five different colours.I alternate four of the colours in each square while keeping the 5th colour which is the 5th round the same. It will make a change to only have one colour to sew in.
Best wishes from Sheila.

Hi Lucy - I am endeavouring to perfect my granny squares! When changing colour every round I am happy with my method however when carrying on with the same colour there seem to be so many different methods out there. I am interested to know which you use in order to have the least obvious 'seam'. I can't find a picture tutorial for these kind of grannies on your blog. If there's one could you point me to it please! Many thanks - you are my crochet heroine!


Its been years since I have crocheted, and I decided recently to start again. I wanted to make a granny square throw for my daughter for Christmas, but I wanted a more contemporary pattern. I'm glad I found this blog! I love the solid colours and can't wait to start.


I've finally got round to these little squares after thinking I wouldn't be able to do them and made 50 in less than a week for a cushion cover, is it normal to be so pleased when I've started joining them and can see the second pattern from the corner spaces! Haha. And when my son noticed it (8) without me saying I got a tiny bit excited, got the look as if to say oh no she's gone mental with the crochet again.

Well thank you for all the patterns, I've bought each of your blanket packs & am making these from leftover sunny stripe x

Just started to crochet again after 60 years. Your work is so inspiring.Can't wait to get going with some projects.

Janet Tweedie

This is fabulous! YOU are fabulous! I love these little squares, and am considering replacing the 3-round granny squares for the Stylecraft Candy Pop Blanket with these lovely little gems! Thank you! ❤️

Sherry Fish

Thanks for the post i love this idea and am starting something with this design NOW :)

Amei, vou fazer para mim, abraços!!!!!!


Hi. Love the tutorial. I'd never crocheted before. The squares are turning out lovely! Trying to estimate how many I need for a lap blanket? Right now I have 6 skeins of colour and will finish them. If I need more squares I'll introduce one new colour skein at a time and make all the squares I can with it. I'm not even 1/2 way through each of my first 6 and I have 80 squares completed!! Just a few a night here and there!

So, just an idea of how many squares you think I need would be fantastic!

Thank you for the wonderful blog! I never had the urge to crochet before :)

Hi Lucy. I love your patterns and style! I started with these squares and want to make them bigger (more rows) and then work it into a blanket. But...when I go past 4 rows, the sides get too long and the block doesn't lie flat anymore. I thought maybe the increase of stitches per row becomes too much for bigger blocks? Or will it shrink into a square again?
So I tried only putting "1 tr, 2 ch, 1 tr" in the corners, but now it's not square anymore (the corners curl up).
I am using Elle Family Knit 100% acrylic Chunky and a 5.5mm needle.
What would you advise?
Thank you!!


thanks for this pattern I am using it to make larger squares for a chakra coloured blanket, will share it on your lovely page when done x


What a wonderful tutorial! As I read the instructions I felt as if I were in a classroom and you were speaking directly to me. I have been wondering how to make invisible seams and was browsing your posts and am so glad I found this one. I love this joining method, and I will be using this in my next project. I am thinking of making a granny square bag and am so happy you posted this. I love your blog and look forward to each new project of yours.
Thank you for sharing.

Hello Lucy
I have just completed a square following your tutorial and am so happy with the way it's turned out. Thanks a bundle for sharing your knowledge and creative skill so generously - it must take some time to prepare the images step by step. I would like to keep going to make a blanket with these jolly little squares and am also wondering about a border. Any suggestions? Thanks again!
