Gratitude Granny Square

I am very excited to share with you a special granny square for Granny Square Day 2022 called Gratitude. I am so grateful for everything that crochet has brought into my life, so I’m giving back with this pattern and saying thank you and showing how much the community and craft mean to me.


A huge shout out goes to my beautiful group of testers. I say it all the time, and I’ll keep saying it, I would not be able to do what I do, without you all.

I have created a FREE pattern which you can download as a PDF below. Here are some details first.

Finished Size:


Blue, Green, Orange and Yellow Square: 12cm across
