Floral Granny Square (Free Crochet Pattern + Video Tutorial)

by - August 09, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

Here's the pattern for my Floral Granny Square, a lovely and quick-to-work-up motif that can be used as an intricate addition of detail for the Daisy Dreams Boho Bag (free pattern)


I think the floral granny square really adds to the bag's rustic and spirited farmhouse charm!  Other than using it on this bag pattern, you can also use it in other ways, like a cup coaster or mug rug.


You can have so much fun with the yarn colors too.  I chose white and two shades of teal/turquoise to create this wintery-looking square! #grannysquaremakes2020

    1. Hi, I'm so sorry to hear it's confusing and hard to follow! It's tough when there are lengthy instructions for each round. I will work on making a video tutorial for this one as a cup coaster/mug rug! :) Stay tuned, it'll be on my Youtube Channel when I'm done!
