I am so excited I am finally finished sewing in all the ends on this granny square blanket! Woohoo!
This is for my son in California girlfriend..She chose the colors and I love the way it turned out!Isn't it just so pretty!
There are 13 granny squares across and 15 rows down.. Look at all those ends.. and a sleepy pup!
Flower Granny Square Pattern
To make the granny squares .. chain 3 with size H hook. join to first chain to form a ring..
chain 2 ( counts as first DC) then do 7 double crochets in ring ..slip stitch to top of the first chain 2.
there will be 8 spaces in the circle.
Join new color..
Chain 2( counts as first DC) 2 double crochets in the first space.. then 3 double crochets in the remaining 7 spaces..Join with a slip stitch to the top of the chain 2
It should look like a flower at this point.
Join next color.
you will do this next round in between each flower petal.
chain 2 do 2 double crochet..chain 1 ,3 more double crochet all in the first space which makes a corner.. next space 3 double crochet.. next space 3 double crochet, chain 1 ,3 double crochet which makes another corner ..continue alternating until you have 4 corners.. join to the top of the first double crochet..
I use a join as you go method to connect the squares ( all the white on the blanket) and you can click HERE
to get those instructions..
The border is a row of single crochet ..2 rows of half double crochet and another single crochet row.. to make the little ruffles I slip stitch around the post ,chain 3 ,skip a stitch then repeat .I did that in the last single crochet row and the first half double crochet row.. I used a size H hook and the yarn is from Hobby Lobby I love this yarn except for the orange which was a different brand .
There are 3 colors of pink , the orange and lots of white..
