Crochet Flower Granny Square pattern details
It was a lot of fun to design this little crochet flower granny square! I wanted a pop of texture and different stitches to give this square a unique look.
This easy crochet granny square starts with a couple of rounds of single crochet then moves on to a round of modern cluster stitches. The next round features the beautifully textured popcorn stitch.
The next round will be worked to square off the circle so there is a mix of short and tall stitches in order to make this square a “square”.

For my square, I used King Cole Big Value Aran. Thank you so much for King Cole for providing me the yarn for this project! I had never used this yarn before this and I really enjoyed working with it. Big Value Aran is available through your local yarn shop or online at LoveCrafts or Wool Warehouse UK. If you’re new to Big Value Aran, it’s a soft medium (aran/#4/worsted) weight yarn with a pretty twist. Big Value Aran is an acrylic, easy care yarn that you can wash and dry in the machine, so it’s perfect for a blanket in any size.
I made another sample in Paintbox Cotton Aran and it turned out so pretty! Perfect for spring or summer projects!
Looks great in so many colors, too! Check out Marie’s square!

How do I get to the free pdf patterns of my lifetime membership? Also I like to print my patterns but don’t want to print anything but maybe 1 picture of the item along with the instructions and leave out the ads etc. I use an iPad if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance for your help.
I am happy to help – just sent you an email with the instructions you need. Thank you so much for your support! Tonya
