Are you looking for some beautiful crochet projects with Granny Squares? You’re in the right place!
When it comes to granny squares, there are mainly two types of crocheters.
- The ones who absolutely refuse to crochet another granny for the sake of their life!
- And the ones who loooove to crochet granny squares.
Since you are here, I’ll assume you are the second kind, and that granny squares are your kind of thing.
However, after piling granny squares over granny squares, that question always comes… What to do with all those granny squares?!
So, today, I would like to share with you lots of ideas on what to make with granny squares. For each project idea, I searched the web and found some nice patterns to link to.
Just check the size of the squares used in these projects and see what fits best with the ones that you already have!

But there’s a very easy solution to that problem. Just double them!
