Thanks Lucy for another wonderful, clear tutorial. I am currently,busy with your cottage ripple blanket and love the smooth texture of the stylecraft yarn and how you have put the colours together. Is there any chance of letting us know the colours you have used for,the gorgeous solid granny square blanket?


One becomes in a good mood, seeing your happy colours.

Love it!! Thanks for sharing such a great idea for our odds and ends of leftover yarn!! :) xoxo


Hello from California. I was wondering if you or any of your readers have ever tried to make these squares out of 100% cotton...like the kind used for cotton dish rags? I have lots of odds and ends that I can't part with. Love the vibrant colors! Thanks


Thank you so very much , Lucy!!! I can't wait for the fun to begin!

Heather Estudinan

Wow, Lucy, what a great in-depth tutorial. I am absolutely amazed at the time and patience you have to go to such lengths for us out here in cyber space. Thank you so much! Jackie x ps the sun is shining in Cumbria today, and Thursday and Friday are supposed to be a LOT warmer - yay!


Oh thankyou soooo much for this tutorial; I am(and this is all thanks to you!xx)just trying to learn myself how to crochet, because all I want to be able to do is squares just like these to make up into blankets! I shall put all this post somewhere safe to use just as soon as I can!!!!many many thanks again, I just love your blog xx

Robin Summers

Awesome tutorial as usual. I love these solid grannies. A nice change from the original grannies. Thanks for you time. I so appreciate all of your tutorials. You rock Luce!! xxxxxx Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)


Fabulous!! Just did two squares and they look just like yours... Even the size. I am a beginner and have taught myself. Very easy to follow pattern. Thank you.


Beautiful colours and great tips. Thanks


Great tutorial. Thank you


Thank you so much for this tutorial. It's great info as I have lots of squares I want to piece together... One quick question, do you steam your squares before joining them together or do you just join them right away? Thank you again!

Jenny low

Thanks Lucy for your great tutorials you really put so much work into them and they must take so long for you to do,the photos are always very clear. I love your blog always inspirational,I hope you are going to write a book soon as I am sure it would be very successful especially for people who are just starting to crochet.Thanks again.

Tove Marie Bach

Thank you. You are doing a great job :-) Easy to understand and very helpful with all the photos. Haven´t got enough time for all the ideas you plant in my head :-)


Aha, now I understand why my solid squares always twist around anticlockwise - I'm missing out that first stitch into the top of the row below - the one that you say "hides" under the corner trebles.

Thank you!!!!!!!
