Crochet Tutorial: In the Garden Granny Square

Crochet Tutorial: In the Garden Granny Square

I created this In the Garden Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting floral design! 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.

There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
