Here you can find all the information to make a solid granny square blanket. The patterns were originally released as part of a crochet along in 2019.
I’ve had to keep this top secret for months now, and finally, the day has arrived that I can share my new design and my new crochet along with you.
You can make this wonderful colourful solid granny square blanket in just 7 weeks.
What is a crochet-a-long I hear you ask? Basically we all make the blanket at the same time. I release patterns every week and set you “Homework” to make a number of squares too. The end of the project – you will have your very own Solid Granny Square blanket.

So, what do you need to know?
Yarn for the Solid granny square crochet blanket
Just look at these amazing colours? How could you not just want to squish this lovely yarn!
But, I hear you ask, there’s a colour missing – the white? Yep, how exciting is this, I asked them to make me a white so I could make this blanket!
And they did! A LIMITED EDITION – Pure! Just for me (and you guys doing this CAL) How amazing is that!!!
Of there are of course other suppliers too, but you will need:
Finished Solid Granny Square blanket size
The finished blanket measures 200x 130cm. Yep, you will make a huge blanket in just 7 weeks. You could make it bigger or smaller, just make more squares!
This is the perfect project, for crocheting together on a cold autumnal night!
Skills to make the solid granny square blanket
The absolute beauty of this project is that it is beginner-friendly. If you can make a US Double / UK treble crochet, this is perfect to teach you some new skills.
Each week you will learn a new skill, and then as there are more squares to make, you get to practice these skills.
So don’t be daunted, it’s perfect for expanding your crochet knowledge week by week!
If you’ve ever read FPTr, and thought – no way, well by the end of this project you’ll doing them like a pro!
