You might remember a few weeks back I shared the photo tutorial and pattern for how to make the Circle to Square Granny Square and now I have FINALLY whipped up the blanket.
This pattern makes a throw blanket that is approximately 36 inches wide by 66 inches tall, and is the perfect size for a throw/lap wrap. The blanket can be easily made larger or smaller by simply making more or less squares.
Do you think you’ll give this pattern a try? Let me know in the comments below!
Without further ado, let’s dive into the pattern!
Circle to Square Granny Square Blanket
- Big Twist Value Yarn (5 skeins in White, and 1 skein in each of the remaining colors: Gold, Teal, Soft Gray, Blush Pink, and Medium Rose)
- Size 5.0mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- 36 inches wide by 66 inches tall
Making the squares
The photo tutorial and pattern for the squares can be found here. Create 60 squares. Weave in all ends.
Each square measures out to be approximately 5.5 inches by 5.5 inches. Wet block by shaping your squares to your average size square. (Be sure you don’t skip this step! This helps your blanket join together more evenly, and it will look like a million bucks when you’re done!)
Joining the squares
Below is the color graph I used for my blanket, but feel free to get creative!
Once your blocked squares have dried, lay them out as shown in the grid above.
Join squares by putting back sides together and lining up your stitches. Join by single crocheting. (The seam should be on the front of your work.)
To make your squares line up evenly, join all horizontal squares first, and then join all the vertical squares (these can be switched around – the important take away here is to pick either horizontal or vertical first and finish one direction’s joins before joining in the other direction!)
After joining, you will be creating a border with hdc’s.
Round 1: Starting in a corner, ch 2 (ch 2 does not count as a stitch), make 5 hdc, hdc in each stitch around the blanket, making 5 hdc’s in each of the remaining corners, join with the 1st stitch of the round using slip stitch.
Round 2: ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), hdc in each stitch around the blanket, making 3 hdc’s in each center corner stitch. Join with the first stitch of the round using slip stitch.
Cut yarn, and weave in all ends.
