Original and best…
The classic granny square works wonderfully to create a patchwork effect in this beautiful vintage style blanket that could be straight from Granny’s attic.

Pattern Notes
A full written pattern for my Classic Grannie Square together with joining information and border instructions.

Skill Level
A great next step on from the classic granny square, a simple blanket and border using basic stitches and a decreasing stitch.
