Crochet Pattern: Granny Square With a FlowerBy A Guest Writer – 20 Comments
A Guest Post by Jolanta Gustafsson.
This pattern for a granny square with a flower is easy to crochet and easy to adjust to your own style. Just choose the colors that you like and combine them as you want. If you want to get a stylish look, choose one color – natural white or some other light shade. To get a more cheerful look, use contrasting colors but keep them in order. For example, red shades in the center of the granny and blue-green shades up to the edges. And if you choose colors
randomly, you can get quite a cheeky look!
Note: Squares in the photo are joined with single crochet stitches.
