{Crochet} Daisy Wheel Granny Square

free daisy granny squareWelcome to my Daisy Wheel granny square tutorial. I love it when a pretty crochet square design is born unexpectedly! I was playing with these glorious colours last week when this pretty granny square emerged. It’s a simple but pretty square that i hope to make a blanket with, but it would be just as pretty as a cushion. If you make the square, please tag #daisywheelgranny when your posting images to instagram and add the tag #daisywheelblanket if you decide to make a blanket. I really love seeing your pictures.

I have used Heirloom Cotton 8ply in the following colours –

Citrus Lemon (6696) Yarn A

White (6607) Yarn B

Pale Green(6612) Yarn C

Pale Pink (6605) Yarn D

Coral Pink (6611) Yarn E

You could use any 8ply cotton and switch up some of the colours too. I’d love to see this square in different colour combinations.
