Crochet Willow Granny Square Free Pattern + Video

Updated: Sep 17, 2023



Hi everyone! Today's free pattern & video is this pretty Willow Granny Square! I used 3 colors but of course, you can use one or mix up your own combo. My favorite way to find colors is just to search on Google for color combos and there is so many to choose from.

This block is called the willow block and wasn't created by Jan. It has been around crochet world forever. This video is just showing how to do it. Thank her for a clear tutorial and great color picks. I recently picked up crochet again and if it weren't for videos like this I would not know what to do, as i am a knitter at heart. Thanks for this great video.

I have a problem with round 7. Why do you do a chain 3 in the first chain 3 space then do[2dc. ch2,, 2 dc,] in the first corner ch3 and then you do [3dc, ch2,3dc] in every other corner? Maybe I'm not reading the instructions correctly, but to me it seems different than the tutorial....I'm confused!

For your information guest, this block has been circulated since the 1800's. The many blocks in Jan Eaton's book have been around since the beginning of crochet. There are so many versions of the blocks. Instead of knocking this post, you should be thanking her for showing so many different beautiful color combinations of the pattern. There really aren't that many new original crochet blocks that were invented in the 1900 hundreds. If you go to Europe they make the most beautiful crochet items, and many of them certainly have never heard of Jan.
