Flufy’s Granny Square Blanket Crochet Pattern


A lap-sized granny square blanket you can crochet for (or with) your favorite kid.


My son, who likes to call himself “Flufy,” has Cozy down to a science. Wherever he happens to be, if there’s a couch with a blanket, he’ll crawl underneath and make himself right at home. So, when it was his turn to be on the receiving end of a significant Mom-made project, I knew that he would appreciate a lap blanket.

The project in this ebook is the exact blanket I made for Flufy. This is a great do-together project, if the recipient is old enough to follow a few simple color-choice rules.

Required Skills

The project is great for beginners!  If you can:

  • make a slip knot
  • chain stitch
  • slip stitch
  • double-crochet stitch

then you can do this. And if you can’t do these things, I’ve included resources that will help you learn.
