Patchwork is as current and as beautiful as it was in grandmother's time. And you do not need much. Wool, a crochet hook, love for nostalgia, time and leisure as well as enjoy crocheting. There is talk of a patchwork blanket made of different granny squares. The only thing to watch out for, it can quickly become an addiction and you end up in Granny Square fever.

A colorful patchwork quilt is perfect if you want to bring some color and vibrancy to your sofa or bed. The size of the ceiling does not matter. It fits on the cozy sofa as well as in the cot or as a play blanket for the little ones. Crocheted from many small squares, the patchwork blanket is guaranteed to quickly become the eye-catcher of the room.

In our tutorial we show you how to easily and easily crochet a self-crocheted patchwork blanket out of different little Granny Squares. Step by step, we explain the individual squares, so that even beginners can rework this ceiling well. Based on the many photos you can recognize every crochet process and crochet as well yourself.

The interesting thing about a Granny Squares patchwork quilt is how it's made up of round Granny's squares that you then crochet together into a blanket. But you will soon discover that this is not art, but a technique that can be learned quickly.

Material and preparation

Each blanket gets the character you give it. You decide what your new feel-good accessory will look like. This starts with the selection of wool, the yarn color, the different patterns and ends with the size. Here you can let your imagination run wild. But you can just as easily crochet and see what chance holds in store for you.

We decided on a blanket of six different patterns. In the color selection, we have given preference to different shades of blue, only a few white, red and yellow dots bring something alive in our patchwork blanket. But that is just our example. You will be guaranteed to give your patchwork blanket your own texture. This starts with the yarn selection and continues with the colors. The possibilities are almost endless.

yarn selection

We have chosen a high-quality cotton yarn to make our Granny Squares beautiful. Our requirement was that we process a soft wool that meets even the highest demands. Our yarn is therefore completely in line with the cotton yarn Mille Fili by Wolle Rödel . The wool is mercerized and gassed, that is, the yarn has a certain elasticity and strength as well as a smooth surface. There is also this yarn in many colors, so that a good color combination is possible. We crocheted with a 3.5 crochet hook .

So much yarn you need:

How much yarn you need is simply due to the size of your patchwork quilt. Our Granny Squares are 12 cm square.

Tip: Before you cover yourself with a lot of wool for your patchwork blanket, first buy only 1 ball of each color. Cotton yarn usually has a good yardage. At Mille Fili this is 130 meters / 50 grams of wool. That means you can crochet a lot of Granny Squares with a ball of yarn.

pattern selection

We have put together six different Granny Square patterns for you. From these patterns you can put together your patchwork blanket the way you like it best.

We will show you what a pattern with several shades looks like and which character receives the same pattern when crocheted in one color. So you can crochet from a single granny pattern many different variants. They simply change the colors and already create new peculiarities.

For all patterns applies

For all Granny Squares in our guide applies:

Every new round begins with climbing air meshes. They simply indicate the height at which work continues.

  • For a strong loop, only one ascending air mesh is crocheted
  • For half a stick 2 air meshes
  • For a whole stick 3 air meshes

Each round ends basically with a chain stitch. Even if not mentioned in the manual every time, you will need to complete each round in Granny Square with a chain stitch.

When we talk about several rows of airlocks together, we usually call this "airmesh bridge" or "chain of airmesh". It is then always meant the air meshes, which are between the crocheted stitches (stitches, sticks). If new stitches are crocheted in these chains or bridges, these loops will be crocheted . That is, you do not compulsively stab in an air mesh, but embrace it simply while crocheting.

The final round of a quadrangle in Granny Square will be described as a separate guide at the end of all instructions. It is therefore not described in the complete instructions.

If at Granny Square a new round begins at a point that is not intended as the next stitch, then work your way up to this round start with chain stitches .

If you start such a round with a different color, this is not a problem. Just start with the new round as indicated in the instructions.

Instructions - crochet patches

1st patch

1st round: The first round consists of the thread ring, the magic ring.

2nd round:

  • 8 times: crochet 2 sticks and 1 air stitch into the thread ring. The first chopstick is worked by 3 riser air stitches.
  • The round ends with a chain stitch

3rd round:

  • 3 climbing air meshes
  • Crochet 3 sticks and 1 air stitch into each airmesh bridge.
  • The round ends with a chain stitch.

4th round:

  • In each chain: 2 sticks - 2 air stitches - 2 sticks
  • The round ends with a chain stitch.

5th round:

  • 3 climbing air meshes
  • In each aerial bridge: Crochet 7 rods
  • The round ends with a chain stitch

6th round:

  • 1 climbing air mesh
  • Crochet 1 stitch in each stitch of the previous round.
  • Between the individual shell sticks work a long solid mesh. You sting with the needle around the entire space.

In the picture, this is clearly visible in yellow.

Round 7: Start with a long, sturdy loop crocheted between the flowers.

Tip: If you crochet this round with a new color, just start over at this tight stitch.

However, if you are still crocheting in the same color, then work your way up to this lower-lying set with warp stitches.

Work in this order:

  • 1/2 sticks
  • 4 fixed stitches
  • 1/2 sticks
  • 2 sticks
  • 1 double stick + 3 air stitches + 1 double stick = into a puncture
  • 2 sticks
  • 1/2 sticks
  • 1 fixed loop
  • Crochet this order 3 more times.

8th round:

  • 2 ascending air meshes
  • In each stitch work 1/2 chopsticks.
  • In the corners of the quadrangle, this is the aerial bridge of the preliminary round, work 3 half rods

Her first Granny Square is almost done. Only the border is missing, so that at the end all squares fit together.

Tip: It is best to sew all work threads immediately after every Granny Square. This only takes a few minutes and is not an effort.

However, if you want to sew all the Granny Squares, which can be very many, depending on the size of your blanket, only at the same time before sewing them together, you will need many working hours. And often you lose the desire to finish the patchwork blanket.

2nd patch

1st round: Make a magic ring (thread ring).

Round 2: Work 7 half rods in this thread ring. For the first half stick, work 2 riser meshes.

Tip: Each Magic Ring starts with Rising Air Stitches. These risers count as a whole like a normal crochet stitch.

3rd round: Crochet 2 sticks in each stitch of the preliminary round. You now have 14 sticks in the round.

4th round:

Work the following steps over the entire round:

  • 1 air mesh as climbing air mesh
  • 3 fixed stitches
  • 1 slit stitch
  • 1 air mesh
  • 3 fixed stitches
  • 1 slit stitch
  • 1 air mesh
  • 3 fixed stitches
  • 1 slit stitch
  • 1 air mesh ...

Continue working in this order.

5th round:

In this round, 7 shells are crocheted with 4 sticks each. Crochet 4 sticks into each well of the small bows from the preliminary round. Put a warp stitch in the middle of the 3 stitches. The round ends with a chain stitch in the first stitch at the beginning of the round.

6th round:

Crochet in the hollow of 2 shells:

  • 1 stick - 1 airlock - 1 stick = all in one puncture
  • 2 air meshes
  • The first stick is replaced by 3 riser meshes

On the coming shell they put in the middle 1 fixed stitch and 2 air stitches.

7th round:

Crochet 1 stitch in each stitch of the previous round. In the aerial bridge of the two rods a crochet is crocheted. In the 2er Luftmaschenbrücke 3 fixed meshes are worked.

Now a square is being worked out of a round Granny Square.

In the first puncture:

  • Work 4 air meshes for the 1st double rod
  • 1 double stick
  • 2 air meshes
  • 2 double sticks
  • 2 sticks
  • 2 half sticks
  • 5 fixed stitches (these represent the middle part of the square)
  • 2 half sticks
  • 2 normal sticks
  • 2 double sticks
  • 2 air meshes
  • 2 double sticks
  • 2 sticks
  • 2 half sticks
  • again 5 fixed stitches for the middle part.

The round ends with the 2 half chopsticks and the 2 whole chopsticks at the first corner. Kettmasche in the first double stick.

9th round:

  • Crochet 1 stick in each stitch of the previous round
  • In the corners: 1 stick, 2 air stitches, 1 stick

10th round:

  • In every 2nd stitch from the previous round: 1 half stick and 1 airlock
  • In the corner: 1 half-stick, 1 air-mesh, 1 half-stick

After these two grannys, you could already experience Granny's crocheting and crocheting a square from a round pattern. We will therefore not describe the next Grannys in such detail. It will satisfy you the basics of each round, you could already learn a lot.

Tip: It is often difficult to pierce with the crochet hook in narrower stitches, such as air mesh.

For such cases, we always put a thinner crochet hook aside. With her, we then pre-cut the work and crochet with the normal needle just continue. This saves time and nerves.

Instructions for each Granny Squares are now complete.

Crochet margins

Now you have to work the margins. This is simply necessary so that you find exactly the same conditions when crocheting together. Only in this way does it produce a consistent and clean picture.

For this we simply crocheted the individual Grannys with fixed stitches. We used white yarn for that. If you think that solid stitches are too boring or too short, you can of course also crochet the squares with half or whole sticks. According to your taste. In the corners, of course, we have also made sure that a nice corner persists.

We crocheted the corners like this:

  • 1 fixed loop
  • 2 air meshes
  • 1 fixed loop

Join patches together

Of course, you will always interpret your Grannys and see how big your blanket has become. Now, if you think you crocheted all the Grannys, those many squares of course have to be put together. There are various possibilities.

We opted for a simple, yet pretty option. We crocheted all the granny squares together with tight stitches. To do this, lay out all Granny Squares, preferably on the floor, so that you get an overview of the entire work. Now you can also decide which quadrants might be better placed.

When you're done, the Grannys are always crocheted in rows.
These are the beautiful sides of the Grannys inside and crochet the squares on the left side, so to speak. The opposite edge stitches are always crocheted together to form a tight stitch.
