This crochet flower granny square is so pretty that it really deserves a project to use it on. I was going to do a beautiful pattern for a Mother’s Day Crochet along and it had to be canceled. Since the square was so lovely, I thought I would share it with you now. Maybe this fall we can use it for a pretty pattern.
Below you will find the written pattern for this granny square as well as a video tutorial. Make sure to read the notes on how to change the stitch count of this square to make it easier to use in your projects.
There are also instructions for how to get the premium printable PDF pattern for free.
Crochet Flower Granny Square
This is the first time I have ever designed a crochet granny square. I have to say the challenge was invigorating. This pattern was designed to work with a beautiful shawl, will look amazing in a blanket or afghan, and bordering other projects.
Picking Your Granny Square Colors
I tried several color combinations for this flower granny square. I think that the flower looks wonderful in a solid color and as a two-toned flower. Below you can see the pattern worked in several different color combinations.
Stitches Used in the Crochet Flower Granny Square
I would love to tell you that this is an easy crochet pattern, but besides the solid granny square, I don’t really feel like any granny square will fit in that category.
For this crochet flower granny square, you will need to know how to do all the basic stitches from single crochet to treble crochet. You will also need to know how to double crochet 2 stitches together and make a cluster stitch. There are written instructions for these stitches below. They are also demonstrated in the video tutorial.

This square is simply beautiful….and it would blend well with some granny squares I had made a few years ago. I have seven 7″ inch squares in a solid pastel pink and seven solid soft yellow. Not sure I would want a baby throw ….maybe a shawl for myself. Any ideas???
The sky is the limit. I see it being used in a spring throw blanket.
Hi, I’m really enjoying making these granny squares by watching the video! In Row 3, the video says to slip stitch into the space after crocheting the first petal and doesn’t mention a single crochet stitch. The written instructions above say there will always be a single crochet in the spaces alternating with the cluster petals. The written instructions are right, yes?
I would trust the written instructions. I will have to check the video, but sadly I am not able to correct the video once published. I know there is another error in the video where I mixed up two stitches in the corner. But it seems to be an obvious mistake to most people and they are able to correct it.
I would love to get the PDF …looks like a fabulous “granny”
Hi, I have made the PDF available to all newsletter subscribers. If you subscribe and confirm your subscription you will be given a link and a password to access the printable resource page where there are a handful of PDF patterns, printable gift tags and project labels, and a crochet journal all exclusive to newsletter subscribers.
I joined the newsletter but still can’t print out pattern. Thank you
Can you clarify a little more? Did you get the confirmation email? Did you make it successfully to the printable resource page? Did the pattern simply fail to download?
I made a similar throw many years ago. I still have it/same colors as yours except I added a light blue too. But what sets our patterns apart, is how I joined the squares. I used a chain stitch (around each square, I started with a single crochet, chained 5, skip 5, single crochet, and repeat. Cut and tie off. To join, place two blocks together and make a single crochet in corner loops of blocks. Slip stitch 5 then make another single crochet in next loop and repeat until done. Gives it a lacy look and doesn’t take as many blocks. Join blocks to the width you want(this makes one row, then join each row the same row. Finish with single crochet, double, or scalloped edge around the outside border of the whole blanket.
thank you, i was thinking ahead ways of joining. I’ll try your method. Is there any video tutorials you could suggest incase i run into bother . thanks .
I am already a newsletter subscriber. Not sure how to access the resource library and cannot find the PDF file to print. Do I need a password to access that file?
If you are a newsletter subscriber then you can find the link and the page password in the pink box at the bottom of every newsletter. I put it there for your convenience.
My MIL gifted me dozens of the center flowers she had crocheted. I’ve kept them thinking I’d find a pattern sone day to make them into squares and an afghan. Thank you!
You are welcome.
I believe there is a slight correction to be made on row 5. After the 4 dc in the first ch4 space, skip the next stitch. What follows should read “work 4 dc into the next ch4 space”.
This lovely pattern is the one chosen by my friend who wants to learn how to make squares and build a blanket
Thank you for sharing your work. Very nice and easy to work
Yes, I believe you are right. Thank you for letting me know. I have corrected the pattern.
hi, Wonderfull pattern, but how do you crochet it in half? like a triangle.
That would be a different pattern. I did not work up the pattern to be a half triangle.
