Blooming Daydreams Granny Square

Standard

I created this Blooming Daydreams Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a look that reminds me of summer! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

  2. OMG! This is my favourite granny square ever! I have searched l-o-n-g & hard for the perfect square to make a very special afghan. Every time I thought I liked a square a lot, I’d hold off starting, knowing that even though there are lots of lovely ones, I would “know it when I saw it”. And THIS IS IT!
