How to Make a Crochet Flower Granny Square

A flower square follows a similar structure to most granny square crochet patterns. You will start in the middle, where you will make a flower center using basic crochet stitches.

From there, additional rounds are added to shape it into a square motif. While the pattern uses basic crochet stitches, some experience with puff stitches and the cluster stitch is necessary for creating the flower petals. 

I used this lacy square design for my popular Edelweiss crochet blanket with flower squares.

Best Yarn for Flower Squares

Crochet squares can be made using a variety of different yarns, including worsted weight yarn, DK weight yarn, and lightweight yarn. The type of yarn you choose will depend on the project you are making.

For example, if you are making a blanket, you will want to choose a yarn that is durable and machine-washable. If you are making a scarf, you can choose a lighter weight yarn that is soft and drapey.

Should I block my Granny Squares?

You can use a blocking board but you certainly don’t need one! You can use the top of an ironing board or a blocking mat.

Pin each motif to an even square shape and spray with water (or hover a steam iron over each piece) and leave to dry. It will make attaching them later much easier.I hope you enjoyed this free pattern.
