Going Gaga Over Grannies: Flower Granny Squares


Flower Granny Squares [3]While I walk my neighborhood I’m constantly looking to the left and right of me seeing all the fabulous flowers in everyone’s yard. In my own yard I have these beautiful bold, colorful flowers of orange, purple, pink and yellow. My favorite are the lilacs, but those seem to come and go all too quickly.  Even though I can bring those in my home for that wonderful smell they just won’t last forever. Unlike living flowers, crochet flowers can last forever. Crocheted flowers look amazing when they’re in combination with granny squares [4]. When I see a flower in the middle of a granny it just makes me smile. Some of the crochet patterns can even be abstract that you have to search for the flower within. And just like living flowers, crocheted flower granny squares can be made of bold and bright colors. The best part about making a granny square is that you can leave it alone to use as a coaster or hotpad, or you can join them to make something even bigger like an afghan [5], a purse or a sweater. The possibilities are endless! While the flowers are still blooming let’s make our own creations with these flower granny squares.
