My design ideas and advice: A classic granny square pattern written in my simple and easy to read style. This blanket is a simple and easy crochet project, brilliant for beginners who want to learn how to crochet granny squares and experienced crocheters who want a reminder on how to crochet a square. I have explained in detail what each section means so those new to following patterns can take it nice and slowly whilst creating something beautiful. The blanket is made up of colourful squares so you can crochet one or two whilst you relax in an evening and before you know it you’ll have a mountain of squares ready to be crocheted together into a blanket.
