Granny Square Picnic Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Granny Square Kid’s picnic blanket is just the pattern to create a cute, snuggly blanket that you can use so many ways. Toss it over the back of an armchair for decorative purposes, bring it out for a picnic, or, like the name says – give it to your kids.

You make this pattern by working in squares, which makes it a fun project to take with you on the go. You don’t have to carry the whole blanket with you, but can carry it in squares until you’re ready to work all the squares together in to the finished project.

We chose a vibrant pop of orange that’s muted by the creamy white tones weaved in with the other squares. Get bold with your color choices, or just pick your favorite colors and stick to them.

We can’t wait until you crochet this blanket. The process of making the blanket is a blast, and we want to share the excitement with you.
