Flower garden Granny squares

I am playing with cotton summer yarns lately when I have a little spare time. Like when I watch TV or wait for my daughter's after school activities get over. I got eight different colored yarns and I am crocheting these granny squares with it.


The flower petals are three dimensional. I used white for all petals, green for all leaves, and different pastel colors for backgrounds. That made the project very colorful and it looks like a spring flower garden when I spread them out on the table.



I got these seven colors and white.

The yarns I am using are these. Sugar'n Cream from Lily.

This project is still in progress. I need to make some more squares to finish this. I will tell you what it is going to be when it's done. WITH the crocheted pattern for the granny squares! Have a great week!

  6. Hello! These squares are beautiful! I just learned how to crochet about a month ago and these are on my list of things to make! I also have a daughter born in 2005 and see so many cute girly things to make. I also love the visual pattern that you included (& thanks for explaining the abbreviations for us newbies!). Thank you for the pattern for these =)

    1. Hi anna,
      My square measured about 4-3/4". The size of your square will be a little different from mine. But I hope this measurement would help you calculating the number of squares you will need.
