Granny Square Month CAL 2021

1+ days

Starts 1st July 2021

The Knitcraft Granny Square Month CAL brings together 25 designers who have each created an amazing granny square for you to enjoy. By the end of the month you will have created a unique blanket that you will keep for years.

This year we have packed in even more techniques for you to try, along with some amazing and unique designs. This month is a great chance to try something new and discover new designers along the way.

Last year we loved to see the unique colour palettes that you created for your blankets and can't wait to see your creativity shine through again! Make sure to enter your granny squares in our competition to be in with a chance of winning a £100 Hobbycraft voucher. Enter here.

A new design will be released by 10am throughout the month of July and there will be special takeovers from the designers over on the @Knitcrafthq Instagram. Designs will be released from Monday to Saturday.

Each square has been designed to measure approximately 20cm by 20cm using Knitcraft Cotton Blend. If you find your square is coming out bigger or smaller, it is worth changing your hook size.

Each square will need to be blocked after making. We would also suggest to block the finished blanket and border.

If adjoining squares have a slightly different number of stitches along the joining edge, simply skip a stitch on the side with more stitches when joining. If more than one stitch needs to be skipped, make sure you space them out evenly. This won't be noticeable overall. It may be helpful to hold the edges together with removable/hinged stitch markers or safety pins when joining
