Flat Granny Blanket: Free Crochet Pattern

The Flat Granny crochet stitch tutorial has been one of the most popular crochet stitch tutorials on all of Heart Hook Home. So many love it because of how easy it is to learn, how mindless it is to crochet, how quickly it works up, and how gorgeous it looks when finished. When you put it like that, there’s no wonder this stitch is so well loved.

All that to say… if you’re looking for a free pattern for an easy crochet blanket, this is it!

Flat Granny Stitch (in Rows) Crochet Tutorial

Made using only double crochet stitches, this is a very beginner-friendly blanket pattern. Check out the video tutorial and written instructions on how to crochet the Granny Stitch in Flat rows here, or scroll down to get started right away on the free throw size pattern.

This blanket can be worked in one color, in granny stripes, or using a variegated yarn as I have done here. We add a simple, yet elegant, border in a contrasting color which really sets it off.

As written, this blanket is a medium sized throw measuring approx. 54” x 68” (137 cm x 173 cm) before adding the small border. This is a great size to cuddle up on the couch or to lay at the foot of the bed.

The sizing of this blanket can be adjusted using the information below listed in the “pattern notes”. See more on crochet blanket sizing here.

For this blanket we are using a 100% acrylic, worsted weight yarn. Pictured is I Love This Yarn in the “Emerald Pine” colorway. Other great yarn options include Brava Worsted (the huge Brava 500 skeins would work nicely), Vanna’s Choice, Mary Maxim Value yarn, Red Heart, or your favorite worsted weight acrylic.
