What could be better than granny squares?
Christmas colored granny squares, that’s what.
I’m a traditionalist at heart. So nothing feels more festive than the combination of the colors red, green and white.
And if this holiday season finds you making handmade toys, adding the Cottage Christmas Toy Blanket is a lovely accessory.
Cottage Christmas Toy Blanket
The great news is that the Cottage Christmas Toy Blanket uses very few materials and you probably already have some on hand.
I found it really fun to use the exact yarns from the red and white Norwegian sweater and green shorts from the teddy bear.

If you don’t know how to crochet granny squares, no problemo. I have a full video tutorial that will walk you through the entire process. Even if you are new to crochet, granny squares are a great beginner project.

Customize Your Granny Square Toy Blanket
This project is so simple to customize. Make as many or as few of the granny squares that you need for your project.
Need a bigger blanket? Crochet more granny squares. Need something smaller? Make fewer granny squares. Simple.
The borders will work for any size blanket, large or small.
