Pirate Granny Squares Crochet Patterns

Ever since Kara from Petals to Picots told me she was hosting a Granny Month on her blog, the wheels starting turning in my head of all the different granny squares I could make. The pirate boy was something I’ve been wanting to work on for weeks and when I finally put yarn to hook, it came out pretty darn cute! With some great feedback and advice from my Facebook fans, I perfected the pattern and then was inspired to create more! So here I present to you a Pirate Boy Granny Square, a Skull and Crossbones Granny Square, a Pirate Ship Granny Square and a Parrot Granny Square!

Ultimately I would like to create a pirate themed blanket with all these squares, but I am not sure I am ready to tackle that project right now. So if any of you use these patterns to create your own pirate granny square blanket (or other projects), I would love to see it!

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn
– Size H crochet hook
– Size F crochet hook
– Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
Sl St: Slip Stitch
Ch: Chain
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
TC: Triple Crochet

The actual base squares for all 4 of these uses the same pattern. Here it is:


Pattern for granny square beginning with circle:

Magic ring, 8 HDC in ring, join, ch 1
Round 2: 2 HDC in each around, join, ch 1 (16hdc)
Round 3: 2 HDC in each around (32 hdc)
(This is where you may choose to change color)
Round 4: Chain 3, skip 3 stitches, join with sc, *chain 3, skip 3 stitches, join with SC, *repeat around (you should end up with 8 chain spaces), join to the bottom of the first chain 3. Slip stitch to join to the bottom of the first chain 3.

    I had a pirate afghan I was trying to do and the pattern was written so you could not understand what to do next. When I saw these I was so excited that I could use this instead of the stupid pattern. They are amazing I love them all. Thanks so much for sharing.

    awesome squares! If you are on FB you may want to check out JTL Squares https://www.facebook.com/groups/419401131429805/
    It is group that makes memory blankets for families that have suffered the death of a child. I make squares for them but I never have assembled a blanket which is next on my list to volunteer for. But these squares would look so nice on a boy's blanket. I plan to use them the next time we have a new blanket to make for a boy.

    Thank you for making this a free pattern.

    My favorite baseball team is the Pittsburgh Pirates (I REALLY love baseball), and I named my puppy "Bucco" because the Pirates are called the Buccos, so I'll be making a throw or something with these squares.

    I have already made skull print sheets for my 3 week old granddaughter. This is sooo perfect to match them. The best part is that I can make a couple of blankets in assorted sizes. Thanks for sharing this awesome pattern :-)
