Crochet Rainbow Rows Granny Square Blanket


  • Picasso yarn by Ice yarns (number 4 weight)
  • Bernats premium acrylic
  • 5mm crochet hook


Start by creating a slipknot and chain 4.

  1. Round 1: Slip stitch to the first chain to create a loop. Chain up 3 (counts as first double crochet). Yarn over and make two more double crochets in the center of the loop. Chain 2 for the corner. Do three double crochets in the center of the loop.
    Repeat the pattern until you have four groups of three double crochets and four corners in the loop.
  2. Round 2: Attach the second color of yarn. Do a slipknot and chain up 3. In the corner, do another two double crochets and a chain of 2 then three more double crochets in the same corner. Repeat this pattern in each corner. At the end, Slip stitch to the top of the chain 3 we started with and snip off the end of the yarn.
  3. Round 3: Attach the third color of yarn. Repeat the pattern in round 2. This time after every corner, do a group of three double crochets in the space between the corners.

Continue to alternate colors and repeat the pattern, adding an extra group of three double crochets between corners for every new round.


The border for this blanket is called the “Polka Dot Border”. Insert the hook into any stitch, single crochet for a number of stitches, then make a “Bobble” stitch in the next stitch. The bobble stitch is essentially a group of double crochets will work into the same stitch and left incomplete until the last step. Alternate the bobbles with a number of single crochets.

The Bobble:

  1. Chain up 3.
  2. Yarn over and insert the hook in the first chain, pull up a loop. Repeat this four times.
  3. Yarn over and pull through all the loops.
  4. Go back into your first single crochet and do a slip stitch.

The corner of the border is slightly different. Do three single crochets and then work the bobble stitch in the space. Then, another three single crochets and another bobble.
