Crochet Granny Square Colour Pattern Generator

A fun find online is the Crochet Granny Square Colour Pattern Generator by Melissa Avery-Weir. It is so easy and interesting to watch it generate the next newest pattern you may have kicking around in your head.

You will tell the generator how many squares you want in the width and height of your afghan. Then, it will ask you how many colours you are planning on doing.

Then you go down and select a colour. You have to ADD more colours. You can get close to your colours by sliding the colour bar. Once all of your colours are in, hit that generate button and your new colour layout is available.

Couple Side Notes

The generator isn’t for telling you the instructions round by round. So the generator didn’t ask you how many rounds are in each blanket. I would assume you are using a different colour for each round but you can also improvise. In the sample picture, I could state to yourself, 2 rounds = 1 colour and so on. So be creative.

If you wanted your square to all look the same, then the generator isn’t needed. However, if you want to be outside the box, sort of speak, with colour combos, you can generate the layout. Print it and save it.


I think it’s pretty stink’n awesome! It love this as I struggle with being a little nuts with my colours to be laid out. This helps guide me to be random without hurting my brain to do it. 🙂 It’s so great!
