Week 19 – A Daisy for Granny

This week’s square is based on MaryEllen’s Easy Daisy Granny Square.  Like the pattern title says, this square really is easy to make.  After the flower, the square is just your typical granny square.  Here is a photo of my completed square:

The Pattern, With Tutorial Photos

I used a size H hook to complete this square.  It measures 6 inches by 6 inches, as all squares will need to measure.  Please select the appropriate size hook for your squares to measure 6 inches as well.

I used 3 colors (colors A-C), so the pattern is written for 3 colors.  If you use more/less colors, make the appropriate adjustments.

Abbreviations (for a tutorial of each stitch, see the links page in the menu):
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
tc – treble crochet

To begin, ch 4 with color A.  Join to first ch with a sl st.

Round 1: Continuing with color A, ch 1.  (Sc, ch 4 into loop) 8 times.  Join with sl st to first sc.

Finishing: Weave in all ends, making sure that they are very secure.  You do not want the ends to come unraveled when you wash the blanket.  If you need help with weaving in the ends, check out the tutorial posted in the links page above.
