15 Granny Square Crochet Patterns and how to join them to make patchwork purses, afghans, scarves and shawls

How many of you learned to crochet by making granny squares? I did! I remember being on a long road trip and my Mom, Sister and I crocheting different pattern granny squares.

That was a really fun way to learn different crochet stitches and patterns. The squares worked up nice and fast so that by the time you were bored with one stitch, you could move on to the next square.

Eventually, those squares were joined together into a large afghan. Wonder what ever happened to that.

Granny Squares are super rewarding to make because they work up so fast. You can whip up a bunch of them in a really short period of time. Use heavier yarn and a larger crochet hook and you can finish an entire afghan in no time.

And crochet granny squares are certainly not just for making large blankets or afghans. Grannies make great patchwork scarves, pillow cases, purses, shawls, dog beds, you name it. Change your crochet yarn or change the stitch or color and you have a whole different look.

A great big Thank You goes out to the crochet designers for allowing me to share these patterns with you. I hope you’ll go visit their sites.
