Pretty Silver Granny Square Blanket

This post contains affiliate links.

For this project I used Stylecraft Special DK (100% acrylic) in colours Magenta (1 x 100g), White (1 x 100g), Blush (1 x 100g) and Silver (2 x 100g). You can purchase this yarn here.

I used hook size 4mm for this project.

This quantity was enough to make a baby blanket size measuring 70cm x 82cm. So you will need to increase your quantities of yarn for a bigger blanket.


This blanket is based on the traditional granny square.

Each granny square had 4 rounds.

I have described how I work granny squares elsewhere on my blog. I always flip the square over after each round and start the new colour in a different corner.

I also do not have a chain in between the treble clusters. In the corners I work 2 chains.

Round 1: Magenta

Round 2: White

Round 3: Blush

Round 4: Magenta

I made a total of 30 squares.

I joined the squares using the ‘join-as-you-go’ method with the silver yarn. You can find out how to do the join-as-you-go joining method here.

I worked a simple border as follows:

  • Border round 1: granny stitch (treble clusters UK terms) with silver
  • Border round 2: granny stitch (treble clusters) with silver
  • Border round 3: granny stitch (treble clusters) with white
  • Border round 4: granny stitch (treble clusters) with silver
  • Border round 5: granny stitch (treble clusters) with blush
  • Border round 6: granny stitch (treble clusters) with magenta
  • Border round 7: double crochet (UK terms) with blush

My finished blanket measured 70cm x 82cm.
