Off Set Granny Square with thin or thick border – free crochet pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The Off Set Granny Square free crochet pattern is a fun take on the traditional version. Change up the directions when you lay them out in a blanket for different looks. There are just so many ways you can use this square. I’ve designed this pattern as part of the You’ve Got Options CAL. You can stop after 1 border round for a 6″ square, or then you can keep going to 12″.
