Granny blankets are usually multicolored, and they are certainly very cute. But this time I wanted to do a little twist to the granny pattern. Therefore, I designed this blanket made with one-color granny squares arranged to give a plaid look. Instead of sewing them at the end, the granny squares are joined together as you go.

These granny squares are made each in one solid color. Four colors are needed, in order to form the plaid pattern.

The granny squares can be made as big or small as you want, as long as you follow the color arrangement and order. I made mine with 4-row grannies (medium size).

In my blog you will find the graphic pattern for the granny, and some photos and links for the JOINING part.
