I love this modern take on the granny square with The Purl Bee’s new pattern to make a granny stripe blanket. The photo above is a great detail shot showing the different color options but I love the idea of even making the stripes closer together and having a shade of lovely colors to add in the mix.

The Granny Stripe is a crochet pattern that is made just like the iconic Granny Square, but instead of stitching around and around a center square, it is made by stitching back and forth in rows. The beauty of the Granny Stripe pattern is how effortlessly it lends itself to graphic elements, like bright stripes or big blocks of color.
