Crochet Pattern: Granny Square With a Flower

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.

    I started making squares to put together for an afghan a year or two ago – finding different pretty squares to join together. I’ve not worked on it in the longest time – it is sitting in my closet. I’m going to make a selection of these in different colors and put them with the other designs in my afghan. Thank you for sharing. It is beautiful!

    The end of round four is very confusing. Can you clarify?

    • Jolanta Gustafsson says:

      Hi, Cynthia! The third sl st on round 4 was made in second dc on round 3. So after you’ve made last 5 chs on round 4, insert the hook into the same second dc on round 3 and make sc working over the sl st and the ch that comes after it. Finish the round with a sl st in ch-6 sp (the first sp on the round). The sl st comes to sit at the right side of ch-6 sp. Hope it helps, ask again if not. :)
