Due to the nature of working layered crochet patterns, this pattern is considered Intermediate (if not advanced), BUT as a good friend always says "as a beginner, everything feels hard".

This pattern may be a bit of a challenge, but simply take your time over each row, ensuring you are starting at the right point and you'll get this one done.

Can you even imagine how proud you'll feel when you've got it done?

Flower Granny square

This square will require blocking to ensure that your flower looks fully bloomed and is the right size for inserting into blankets.


The easiest way to do block this square:

  • Grab your tape measure and some pins
  • Pin out to size (10" by 10") on your ironing board
  • Pin down the petals and leaves into position
  • Mist lightly with water
  • Allow to air dry (or use your hairdryer on a cool setting to dry faster)
