I named this blanket “The Whisper of Joy” because it reminds me of my childhood, of that carefree time when joy was an important part of almost every long, seemingly endless day. So, I tried to bring you at least a little joy with this colorful and easy to make blanket pattern.

This blanket is made of 64 granny squares. Each square has only four rows. The squares are joined with single crochet. The border is very simple and has 5 rows.

Skill level: Advanced beginner – Intermediate

The tutorial is written in English using US and UK crochet terms.

Size: 82 cm (32”) x 82 cm (32”), but you can make it in any size simple by increasing or decreasing the number of squares or rows of the blanket.

Gauge: the square measures 10 cm (4”) x 10 cm (4”)

Crochet hook: 4 mm (US – G / 6)

Yarn: Alize
