Issue 109 of Mollie Makes is our community issue and includes Frederika van der Galien’s beautiful crochet community blanket. Made up of three different granny squares in a range of colours, this blanket is the ideal project to work on with your crochet pals. And, to celebrate Simply Crochet’s granny square day, we’re giving you one granny square pattern for free!

Buy issue 109 for the full pattern then make a square each, attach them together and donate to charity for the ultimate wholesome project. Tag us in your pics, whether that’s a pic of you and one granny square or a whole blanket, on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
