This “Meadow Flowers Blanket” granny square blanket is a soft, gorgeous throw that can be customized and is super easy to crochet! It’s made with color changing yarn so you get a TON of colors with just four colorways.
If you’re looking for the easiest flower square, that also happens to not be a yarn eater, this is it! Inspired by flowers in the mountain meadows, this blanket is a unique and beautiful piece for any space.
Yes, I’ve been big on the granny squares for a while – but so has the world! A variety of flower squares and granny squares have been gracing runways, shops, and home decor for quite some time now, so I’m happily riding that train. It’s so much fun to see crochet be “in” and trendy.
The Nora Granny Square Throw pattern on the blog has been quite popular, as has the Arlo Cardigan. And, the Magnolia Tote Bag has been one of my all time most popular patterns, so making a blanket with a similar floral vibe was on my list. This is it!
The best part about this blanket is how simple it is to crochet. It’s easy to customize with your favorite colors. I had so much fun using the color changing yarns to get a wide range of meadow flower colors. Watching your blanket come into shape with all the different colors really keeps you from getting bored!
I wrote the pattern in two sizes so that you have some options and you can pick what works best. It would be a stunning baby blanket, so choose the smaller size if you’d like to make that! It also looks amazing draped over a chair as a throw, so go with the larger option if that’s what you want.
A fun idea might be to line the back of the blanket with a light fleece or flannel for the colder months. It’s also a great way to hide ends if you are a little sloppy with weaving them in perfectly. Lol
This blanket is on the lighter weight side, so it really is great for any climate. It’s also super soft like I mentioned before, so could be nice for a child’s blanket.
What Yarn Do I Use for this Meadow Flower Granny Square Blanket?
I used Lion Brand Coboo and Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarns, but you can use any light or worsted yarn you like with this pattern! Just make one square to begin and check your gauge against mine to ensure it will turn out the correct size. If your square is smaller than mine, you need to adjust your tension or go up a hook size.
Quite honestly, you could have a lot of fun playing around with this pattern using different weights of yarn. If you like a heavier, thicker blanket, it could be fun to try out a chunk yarn. Just remember that your squares would come out larger, so you’d have to do a lot of adjusting for the pattern!

With your white yarn and a tapestry needle, whip stitch seam squares together as pictured
below or as desired. There’s no particular order that the squares must be placed in beyond
the fact that they should be laid out in a 7 X 7 (lapghan/child’s) pattern or a 9 X 10 (throw).
The pictured blanket has the squares in diagonal stripes alternating one diagonal stripe of
squares using Color B (Wild Violets), followed by a diagonal stripe of Color C (Buttercup).
Lapghan/Child’s Size: Seam squares in a 7 x 7 pattern as pictured
Small Throw Blanket Size: Seam squares in a 9 X 10 pattern.
