Are you ready to crochet the Tutti Frutti Granny Squares? Whether you’d love a strawberry granny square, an apple one, a lemon, an orange, a watermelon, or maybe a kiwi, you’ll find the right granny square pattern for you with a fruity twist!
And since we’re here, we’ll also add two hearts and a cute white flower to the bunch!
Fruit Crochet Squares
The inspiration to crochet some fruit squares came from my fruit appliques, which I made over 2 years ago.
You probably remember my strawberry applique, the apple, and the lemon one.
Starting from these appliques, I tweaked the patterns a little and came up with the Tutti Frutti Granny Squares!
Unlike the previous square collections where the basic square pattern was the simple circle granny square, this time, I really wanted to pay a tribute to the classic granny square.
For this reason, the fruit center of each square counts as the first two rounds of a granny square.
Then, the squaring with the classic granny stitch will turn each fruit into a granny with 4 rounds! Or as many rounds as you wish…
What to Crochet with the Tutti Frutti Granny Squares?
These fruit granny squares are perfect for a little mix & match with the classic granny squares.
You can make anything from blankets to market bags, mason jar covers, garlands, pillowcases, etc.

I love these fruity granny squares-your designs are always my favorites and I can recognize them instantly-right now I’m working on the ‘lemon potholder’ design-I’m slow at tapestry crochet but I love the result. I want to do more but I think I might try the CAL for the fruity granny squares-the bright colors just pop against the background color . Thanks for such fun and beautiful designs-I’m happy for you for having ‘a long vacation’-
I would enjoy this CAL if it is held.
Adorable!! So super cute, I love them.
Thank you 🙂
Thanks. So beautiful and natural patterns. You are very generous. Hugs from Chile.
Has this CAL finished as there is nothing saying after part 8 23rd August.
Yes, it’s finished 🙂
I’ll update the post asap!
These are adorable! Thank you so much for the free patterns!
