Crochet Snowman Granny Squares Blanket

Squares and Blocks

A couple of years ago I made the Snowman Granny Square. And updated the pattern this year (2016) with my newest blanket pattern I made using these squares together. These smiling snowy faces can stay looking at each other in this Christmas all the time! Attaching these Snowman Granny Squares together, you can make any size blanket or afghan. It means this is a free size pattern. And also Snowman Granny Square Blanket can be worked with your favorite yarn weight. I used sport weight and made 20 squares. These all squares I joined with Join As You Go (JAYGo) method.

Triple Textures 12" Afghan Square

Squares and Blocks

"In 2014, my friend Tamara from Moogly Blog began hosting year long afghan crochet alongs. Over the coarse of each year, she shares 24, 12″ crochet square patterns designed by guest designers and then wraps up each afghan crochet along with instructions for a border. If you were to dedicate a couple hours of crochet time each month, by the end of the year you'll have a beautiful afghan! The Triple Textures 12″ Afghan Square was designed to be afghan block #4 in the 2020 Moogly Afghan CAL."

Heart Pixel Art Square

Squares and Blocks

Though a little time consuming, pixel art projects are so fun! I think I like most that it kind of resembles a quilt, but also that it uses my favorite join-as-you method - the Pull Loop Through Method! Makes for an easy join, and no worrying about how to assemble later - can't say I enjoy sewing squares together. BUT! If you do, you could always make the squares separately, and then use the mattress stitch (or your preferred technique) to join them later. WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS SQUARE? It's the perfect size for a 16 throw pillow, use it as an afghan square, and build a blanket, add more squares all around to make a larger blanket, use it as a doily, attach it to a dowel rod, and hang it, use it as the star of the show for a sweater/top, even changing up the weight of yarn used will open doors!

Crossed Afghan Square

Squares and Blocks

From the blogger: "This square may be labeled intermediate due to the post stitches, but it's actually pretty easy to crochet! The varying stitch heights create a fun color pattern, while the post stitches give the overall square some texture. Try playing with different colors or even making the whole thing in one color. Just have fun with it. Once you finish the stitches, cut the yarn and weave in all ends. The finished piece after blocking should measure to be a 12” square. Enjoy!
