Crochet Pattern: Mrs. Muir Afghan

By Amy – 14 Comments
In the 1947 movie, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, there are two granny style afghans belonging to Mrs. Muir that are very noticeable. One is a granny motif afghan while the other looks like this one here. I loved the second one so much I decided to redesign it for Crochet Spot. This afghan is a perfect square that you can adjust to make as large or small as you desire. There’s no turning involved with this pattern so the right side of the stitches will all appear on one side. Have fun mixing and matching colors to make this granny square inspired afghan your own! crochet granny square afghan

    Done that afghan so many times over the years. Never thought to write down the pattern, it’s just another granny.

    I’ve made many afghans using this technique – one large, make that humongous! granny square for all the members of my family. It’s easy to change colors to customize to the person you’re making it for. It’s easy enough for beginners and relaxing for us more experienced folk.

  3. Exactly Darlene and Lynne! It’s a basic pattern that’s fun and simple to make with no limit to the color patterns.

    Lynne, I love that you’ve made such a big one. A pretty large undertaking, but I adore granny square blankets. I think I’ll have to do that next!

    What colors and brand of yarn are used in Mrs. Muir’s crocheted afghan???

    • Amy says:

      Hi Bill,
      I used Caron One Pound in colors Peach, Cream, Lace, and Taupe. It was the first time using that yarn for me and I think it’s a very good worsted weight yarn, especially for blankets. :)

      Keep crocheting!

    I’m confused. Wasn’t that a black and white movie? How do you know the colors used?

    • Amy says:

      Hi Carol,

      The colors are simply my choice. I have no idea what colors were used in the original blanket, though it would be fun to find out. You can use whatever colors you choose.

      Keep Crocheting!

    I attempted this afghan but as I progressed around it became “wop sided” for lack of a better word. How can I remake this and have it square as it should be? Thank you.
