Crochet Tutorial: Flower Bunch Granny Square

Standard

I created this Flower Bunch Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a garden-like look with the flowers in the round! 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.
