Fall Granny Square Blanket Pattern Details

The color palette for this fall-themed granny square blanket features a neutral cream background which allows the deep orange, rustic red, golden yellow, warm browns, and mossy green to really stand out. These colors harmonize so nicely together creating a cozy and inviting representation of the fall season.

You may already be familiar with the style of this large square from my two previous designs – the Christmas Granny Square Blanket and the Easter Granny Square Blanket.  Each large square begins with several rounds of double crochet stitches worked as a circle.  The circles are worked with standard increases throughout just offsetting the increases so you end up with a perfect round circle.

The circle is then “squared” off to make joining easier.  Each individual square ends up with an approximate measurement of 14″ x 14″. Perfect for pillows, too!
