The Origin Of This Colorful Granny Square Blanket Free Pattern

This is a free crochet blanket pattern from Yarnspirations. Debbie Stoller originally designed it. She called it the Revisiting Weekend in Stockholm Throw. Later on, I did a full crochet video tutorial to show you exactly how to follow the pattern. You can find that video below. Therefore, you have both the written instructions and the video tutorial to guide you along.

More About This Free Crochet Blanket Pattern

This colorful granny square blanket pattern uses eight different colors of yarn. You’ll combine them in different ways, meaning with different colors in each round, ending up with twelve different color combinations. You’ll make six squares each in four color variations. Then you’ll make four squares each in the remaining eight color combinations. All together, you’ll crochet 56 granny squares. The different colors will reverberate across the blanket to create a colorful garden of floral granny squares. The whole thing is a bright delight.

Digging Into the Pattern Details

Here are some of the things you’ll want to know as you begin to work on this colorful granny square blanket pattern:

  • It uses Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. Don’t forget that you can now get this yarn in the new O’Go Yarn format!
  • You’ll use a size 5.5mm [US I-9] crochet hook. In other words, this is a basic worsted weight crochet blanket pattern.
  • This is a beginner crochet project. It uses basic crochet stitches: single crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. If you can work those in the round to create floral granny squares, then you can crochet this blanket.
  • The free colorful granny square blanket pattern includes an assembly diagram. This shows you the best way to layout the squares. Of course, if you want, you can switch it up to create your own variation on the design.

You’ll find a link to the pattern below. And here is my instructional video for how to crochet this blanket. I take you step-by-step through the process. Therefore, you should find it easy to figure it out if you’ve gotten stuck in any part of the pattern. It’s truly an easy pattern, though, so you should be able to tackle it. Once you’ve gotten the first square or two down, it’s just a matter of switching up the colors.
