101 Free Granny Square Patterns

Granny Square

When I first learned how to crochet, I fell in love with the granny square. I tend to gravitate more toward quick turn projects, and granny squares can be completed quickly and then pieced together as a project later. Voila… instant gratification.

There are many different versions of granny square patterns available on the web, so I put together some of my¬†favorite¬†ones that were free. Some of them aren’t exactly squares, but they would still make a cool afghan so I included them.

I hope you enjoy! Please come back and let me know which ones you decided to try out!

Have a granny square pattern on your blog? Send me an email with it and I may just add it to my collection!

    • You are welcome! That is exactly why I put together this post, so I would have everything in one place and wouldn’t have to look all over the web the next time I was trying to find ideas for a pattern. :)

    I really appreciate that you have so many square patterns, but I am looking for something specific and would really appreciate if you could help me. Many years ago, Simplicity had a pattern for granny squares. One of the patterns was for baby booties made with granny squares. If you have it or know how I might get it, I would love to have it. Thanks for what ever you can do for me…


  8. There is a cute little one-square granny on pinterest but no pattern available. Bet you could figure out the pattern and post it so those of us who can’t look at a pattern and figure it out could actually make the item…..am I right? it is labeled the cutest way ever to end you left-over yarn : the One-Round Granny crochet blanket! pined by Disou Crochet, Diane Wright, Cindy Walker, and others have repined it. I have loads of scrap and this would be great if I knew how to connect the 1-squares together.

    I was wondering if anyone has seen a crochet afghan pattern that is a granny square with a gardenia in the center. The gardenia has several petals that are raised up off the granny square. I made this afghan app. 15 yrs ago when I learned to crochet and lost the pattern. Hope someone can help me. Thanks

    • Does this happen to be the one? http://www.facilisimo.com/riccoboni/blog/decoracion/general/manta-a-crochet_750083.html
      If so, if you click on the image, and click “next” to go through the pictures there is a pattern drawn out on the second image that you may be able to print and figure out. It appears that you start with a magic circle, do single crochets around, and then switch to doubles. Since I’m not the owner of the pattern, I can’t legally publish someone’s pattern without their permission even if I did figure it out for my own personal use, but I think that you should be able to figure it out better if you look at the diagram that they have provided. Thanks!

  11. I just found your site and am so excited. I haven’t done squares in a looong time. I love so many of yours. The palm tree is so cool. Any way tou can do a flamingo to go with it?

    • Thanks for stopping by. I’m not sure about the flamingo design. You might try to google and see if you can find a motif pattern or try to look on ravelry.com also.

  12. check out Repeat Crafter Me, she’s got owl granny squares and pirate granny squares. There’s also a hello kitty granny square out there on a scarf pattern…

  13. I just LOVE grannysquares! Thank you so much.

  14. yay, squares…. I might do one of each to make a patchwork afghan. Especially since me and my housemates have just decided to do squares of an evening so we can have some lapghans :D Thank you so much!
