"The Granny Square Kid’s picnic blanket is just the pattern to create a cute, snuggly blanket that you can use so many ways. Toss it over the back of an armchair for decorative purposes, bring it out for a picnic, or, like the name says – give it to your kids. You make this pattern by working in squares, which makes it a fun project to take with you on the go. You don’t have to carry the whole blanket with you, but can carry it in squares until you’re ready to work all the squares together into the finished project."

This Granny Square confection would make a wonderful throw for a chilly evening, but I dont think Id ever want to use it as a picnic blanket. When I think picnic blanket, I think sticks, burrs, small stones, dirt and bugs so no, Ill stick with my usual thick tarp with a quilt over top. Ill still keep this pattern though because its a wonderful example of a To Go project!

I have a soft spot for granny squares. It was the first project I made when I learned how to crochet. They are easy and very adaptable. Color changes are easy and you make it a square at a time so you can take it with you to work on the go.

I can think of a super color combination for summertime picnic usage! How about a classic red, white and blue?! Oh my, it would look so sharp. And it opens the door for a themed housewarming gift. Just gift a real picnic basket with this granny square blanket!
