SIMPLE CROCHETED BLANKET SQUARES
 (7" square) 
  4 ply worsted weight yarn in various colors
(scraps work well). 
 Size G crochet hook 
 Ch 31 (or whatever gives you 7") 
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in every ch in the foundation. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 2: Working under the 2 top loops of each st in previous row, sc across row. Ch 1 and turn. 
Repeat Row 2 until piece = 7" inches, then fasten off. 
KNITTED 'SEED' SQUARE 
4 ply worsted weight yarn and size 8 knitting needles. Cast on 33 sts. 
 Row 1: Knit 1, purl 1, k1, p1 across row...ending with a knit stitch. 
 Row 2: Repeat row 1 until you have a 7" square. 
(I really enjoy this pattern because of the fun textured effect.) 
Blankets need to be approximately 40" x 60", but any size is welcome. Put together 7" squares in rows of 5 (35") x 8 (56") and then add a double crocheted edge around, which will add another 2" on all sides
 BASIC 7" GRANNY SQUARE --make 40 squares per blanket. (5 squares across X 8 squares down) 
Size I crochet hook & 4 ply worsted weight yarn-varigated yarn! 
Ch 5 and join with sl st to form ring. 
RND 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in ring, ch 3, *3 dc in ring, ch 3; rep from * 2 more times.. Join with sl st in third ch of ch-3 .

SQUARE # 2  (7" square) 
I am using 4 ply worsted yarn in bright colors, but any colors will do, you can even use up your scraps. This is so easy--perfect for beginners! 

Size I hook and 4 ply yarn in any bright colors. 
Ch 25 
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in every ch across. (24 sts) Ch 1 and turn. 
Row 2-26: repeat first row till the square measures 7" x 7". 
You can add 'texture' by crocheting in the back loops only. 
 

HELPFUL HINTS: Since everyone crochets a bit differently, feel free to change the # of sts and rows to = 7".  Be sure to crochet for 2 rows before deciding how wide it is.
