Hey everyone, hope you’re all doing well out there. I shared a granny square tutorial yesterday that’s a great beginner crochet project, and today I want to build on that.

Like I said yesterday, you can build so many things with just one granny square pattern and a little bit of sewing skills.

While single color granny squares are the way to get started if you’re new, today we’re going to discuss adding multiple colors to our squares.

It seems really basic, but the basics are how you get really good at anything.

Just as an example of how far you can take a boring ole granny square; you could create 50 granny squares with different but complimentary colors to make a beautiful, unique blanket.

The possibilities are only limited by your imagination 🙂

Here’s the written pattern and a video tutorial for you all. Hope you enjoy, stay healthy out there!

Stitches use & code

  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • dc = double crochet
  • sp = space
  • REP = repeat

Notes: For this square, I’m showing you with 5 colors and five rounds. If you want a bigger square, or more colors, it’s very easy to just keep repeating rounds until you’re satisfied 🙂
