Fluffy Mitered Granny Square Blanket, Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Fluffy Mitered Square Blanket is a wonderfully cozy throw to welcome cooler weather.  Fluffy, yet light weight yarn is worked up as a traditional granny square, then it transforms into a mitered square...fun and easy!  Yarn cakes make the color changes incredibly easy too.

Need a little help? There's a full video tutorial below too!

Instructions:


Chain 4, join into a ring with a slip stitch.

 Round 1: Chain 4, work (3 dc into center of ring, chain 1) 3 times, then 2 dc into center of ring.  Join to close with a slip stitch.

Round 2: To work the corner of round 2, first chain 3, then 2 dc in same space, then chain 1, then 3 dc in the same space...first corner done!  Then chain 1, then work the next corner by working 3 dc in next space, chain 1, then 3 dc in same space, chain 1, repeat two more times to complete the round.

Round 3: Work the corner in the same manner as the previous round: chain 3, 2 dc in same space, chain 1, 3 dc in same space, chain 1.  To work the sides, simply work 3 dc in the next space then chain 1...repeat until you reach a corner again.

Rounds 4-5   Keep working in this manner, with two clusters in the corners and one cluster on the sides until you finish the round. Just be sure there is a ch 1 in between each grouping of 3 dc as you work each round. That is what gives you those pretty spaces in between each cluster and keeps it nice and flat.

***This is the part where we transform the traditional square into the mitered square.  So far we've worked rounds, for the mitered part we'll work rows instead.

Row 6: Tie new yarn into any corner space and ch 3.  In the same corner space work (2 dc, ch 1).  Work (3 dc, ch 1) in each ch 1 space until you reach the corner.  Work 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc, ch 1) in the corner, then work (3 dc , ch 1) down the next side.  At the end of the row, work a dc into the corner space.

Row 7: Tie new yarn into last stitch worked and ch 3.  Turn.  Work (2 dc, ch 1) into the first ch 1 space.  Work (3 dc, ch 1) in each ch 1 space until you reach the corner.  Work (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc, ch 1) in the corner, then work (3 dc, ch 1) down the next side.  At the end of the row, work a dc in the top of the turning chain.

Repeat row 7 until blanket is as large as you like (finished blanket in photos is 60 inches by 60 inches).

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
