Here’s the truth…Granny Square Month ended TWO days ago, and I already miss it. I can’t deny just how much I love these little squares. So, what better time to create a master blog post featuring every single bit of granny goodness I’ve ever featured on the blog? From the simple beginner granny square to full blanket designs and inspiration posts, it’s all going to be here.

Ready to get stuck in? I promise…you won’t have any treble getting to grips with these grannies!

Let’s start with the basics. Whether you’re a beginner, or just love the joy of a simple square then these are for you!

Once you’ve mastered the art of the treble a whole new world opens up – with plenty of scope for customisation! Honestly, seeing what can be done with a granny square is always inspiring to me. Whether it’s a graphic design, a cute applique or a even a complete rework of the basic shape, there’s plenty of fun designs and inspiration to be found.

For Granny Square Month, I played a lot with perspective, creating fun new shapes and styles. There are also some fancy designs in my pattern archives too! Want to try your hand at something fresh and fun? These patterns are for you.

    I love granny squares, too, but missed out on Granny Square onto completely, with too many other things on my plate. I think September is the perfect time to catch up on crochet!
    I love your content, and especially your color choices of soft and sweet pastels.
    In another matter: I’m wondering if you’d consider offering a printable option for your patterns here on your blog? I am a member but even when I sign in and try to print a free pattern, there are so many pop ups that key instructions are covered up, and lots of paper is wasted. Just a thought?
    Thank you for all you share!

      I offer the patterns for free on my blog, however if you want to print them off I do make a small charge for this so that you can get them without any of the pop ups. Just to let you know that the pop ups and adverts can be deleted if you do not wish to see them. Thank you for your suggestion 🙂
