Mini Grannies in a Row

Do you have lots of small balls of yarn? This is a great project to use them up in a pretty way! The mini granny squares only take about 60" for each one. And you will need lots of squares. You can make them all at once, or over a period of time. They look pretty stored in mason jars.

This is easily adjusted for different sizes. The only really difficult part is figuring out how many mini granny squares you are going to need. My blanket is designed for 18" dolls and measures about 19 1/2" x 12". It uses 98 squares.

Mini Granny Squares

Ch 3 and join into ring, or use magic circle.
Ch 2, (3dc, ch 1) 4 times. Join to first dc with a sl st, ignore ch 2. Finish off.
Weave the yarn in well.
If using magic circle weave the beginning yarn back around the circle at least once and pull tight.


sc dec : yo pull up loop in next ch 1 space, yo, pull up loop in ch 1 space on next square

Join with a sc into a ch 1 space in the first square. Ch 1, sc in the same space *sc in next 3 dc, sc dec* repeat until last square is attached. {sc in next 3 dc,, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch 1 space} 2 times. Repeat * to * until back to first square. Sc in next 3 dc, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch 1 space, sc in next 3 dc, join to fist sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Joining Rows

Holding right sides together, slip stitch the back loops of both rows together to join, leaving front loops free.

Outside Border

Sc in the back loop around, with a sc in the spot where the two rows are joined. Join. Sc in same st as joining, ch 2, dc in same st. Skip 2 stitches, *(Sc, ch 2, dc) in next stitch, skip 2 stitches* Repeat around, skipping only 1 stitch at corners so it lays flat. Join, finish off, weave in ends.
