Spring Farm Granny Squares – The Cutest Farmhouse Animals to Crochet!

With spring in full swing, it’s time to play with yarn and create all things happy and cheerful! So, let’s welcome springtime with the Spring Farm Granny Squares!

I initially shared the Spring Farm Granny Squares as part of crochet along (CAL) over e-mail. Just as I did for my Halloween CAL and Christmas CAL, the patterns were sent via e-mail to all the members of my e-mail list.

Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to receive these patterns via e-mail but you should definitely join my e-mail list to hear more about similar CALs and freebies!

YARN

As for the previous CALs, I crocheted my granny squares using Paintbox Yarns Simply DK, but feel free to choose any equivalent yarn.

Just make sure that the color choice is wide enough so that you are not limited to a few colors.

Looking online, I found that these yarns below are good substitutes, plus they have lots of colors to choose from:

A bit more expensive option:

HOW MANY COLORS SHOULD YOU GET?

These are the colors I used:

HOW MUCH YARN WILL YOU NEED?

Well, it depends. It depends on what project you want to make with your grannies.

In general, keep in mind that:

  • Each square measures about 5.5″ (14 cm)
  • and uses approximately 40 m/43 yds of DK yarn crocheting with a 4-mm (G/6 USA, 8 UK) crochet hook.

WHAT TO CROCHET WITH YOUR Spring GRANNY SQUARES?

Granny squares are great for a number of awesome projects. Of course, the first things that come to mind are blanketspillow covers, garlands, potholders… but that’s not all!

  1. Thank you so much for these adorable CALs. They have been a life saver (literally) during the pandemic. Having these CALs and finding designers looking for testers for their projects have kept me pretty busy this past year and beyond 😊

  2. What a beautiful project for little ones. I am terrible at getting my squares to be all the same size and then sewing them together is another story all together but I do LOVE seeing the finished blankies and the creative squares people create.

      • Hi, no problem at all!
        When you join, the first thing you need to do is to confirm your e-mail address by clicking on a button in the first e-mail you get from me. Then, you should receive a second e-mail to welcome you to the CAL. If you didn’t get any e-mails at all, and there is nothing in the spam folder, then is it possible that there was a typo in the e-mail address you put in the form maybe? In that case, the easiest thing is to fill the form again. otherwise, just send me an e-mail at raffaella at raffamusadesigns dot com 🙂
