Even if you’ve never picked up a crochet hook, you’ve probably heard of granny squares and the blankets they make. Really, they’re as classic as glasses on the tip of granny’s nose!

Also in the pantheon of classics is our Granny Square Blanket Pattern, a start-to-finish primer on crochet’s most important skills. It starts with winding a skein into a ball and walks you all the way through weaving in the ends.

But like granny, who nowadays has swapped her readers for progressives, all classics need an occasional update. Here, instead of our original choice of Worsted Twist merino, we’ve hooked up our Granny Square Blanket in year-round Cotton Pure. We love the soft colors Cotton Pure brings to the story, as well as its cool touch, satisfying weight, and super crochet-ability.
