Cath Kidston-Inspired Giant Granny Squares

This post contains affiliate links.

This blanket was inspired by the colours of Cath Kidston. It is easy to make and works up quite quickly. It is based on the traditional granny square.

I used Stylecraft Special DK in:

Lemon

Fondant

Cloud Blue

Pistachio

Cream

Meadow

Pomegranate

Lipstick

I started off with approximately 10-11 balls of 100g yarn. The finished blanket weighs 700g.

The finished blanket measured 127cm x 94cm.

The pattern is based on the traditional granny square, which is described elsewhere on my blog or can be found on YouTube tutorials.

There are 12 squares in total.

Work 14 rounds of each square, being careful to balance out the colours, and to make sure that you do not use up too much of certain yarns.

On the 15th round, each square was joined to the adjacent squares using the ‘join-as-you-go’ method (which means slip stitching to the adjacent square).

I worked a border as follows:

  • Border round 1: Granny stitch in cream
  • Border round 2: Granny stitch in cloud blue
  • Border round 3: Granny stitch in cloud blue
  • Border round 4: Double Crochet (UK terms) in cloud blue.

Weave in all ends.
