Thanks for visiting my page! Another great beginner pattern and all around very easy crochet pattern to make! My Giant Granny Square Afghan can be made in any color(s) and size!

It's one of the easiest patterns to learn when starting out crocheting because the pattern stays the same through out the blanket and only uses 1 basic crochet stitch. It's such a classic pattern!

Here is the free pattern/tutorial:


Yarn of your choice – I use medium/aran weight for most of my blankets

To keep your square straight, flip your work every other row
CH 3 always counts as 1 DC in the pattern


Crochet Stitches Needed:

ST – Stitch

CH – Chain

SK – Skip

Slip Stitch (SL ST):

Magic Circle/Ring/Loop:

Chain 4 starting method:

Slip Stitch starting method:

Double Crochet Stitch (DC) –

Granny Block – 3 DC in same CH space/ST


CH 3 always counts as 1 DC in the pattern, Every corner must have two sets of 3 DC + 2 CHs for turning To keep my granny rows straight, I FO at each row and attached the next row starting at the corner


Pick your favorite way to start a circle or square: Magic Circle/Ring/Loop, Chain 4 method, Slip Stitch method

Row 1: Make circle, 2 DC into center of circle, CH 2, *3 DC into circle, CH 2, Repeat from * 2 more times, SL ST into first DC stitch made in this row

Row 2: CH 3, 2 DC in same space as CH 3 just made, CH 1, *3 DC in corner space, CH 2, 3 DC into same space, CH 1, repeat from * around the square, SL ST into first CH 3 made in this row.

Row 3: CH 3, 2 DC into top right corner space, *CH 1, 3DC into next open space, CH 1, 3 DC, CH 2, 3 DC into open corner space, Repeat from * around square, SL ST into first CH 3 made in this row.

This will be the same pattern throughout. In each open space on any side you will do 3 DC. In-between any 3 DC on the sides you will CH 1. In each corner space you will make 3 DC, CH 2, 3 DC into the same corner space.

Continue this pattern until you reach you desired length
