Granny Squares, a variation of an old theme. This was big in South Africa in the sixties and seventies. Everybody had a granny square blankie. My gran thaught me how to chrochet on this pattern. There are several variations of this pattern.
Weekend Granny Throw Crochet Pattern - This graphically interesting throw is easy to make. Start at the center with thicker than usual yarn and make just one great big granny square. It’s crocheted in one piece, so there is nothing to sew together.
