Daisy Wheel Granny Square

daisy wheel granny squareDaisy Wheel Granny Square

Welcome 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. Tag your makes with #daisywheelgranny when your posting images to instagram because i love seeing your images.

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.

    Hi! I’ve been looking for a pattern similar to this one for so long to make my kids blankets. It’s so pretty!! I was wondering though, would you consider making a video tutorial or suggest some for me? I’m a beginner and I’m having trouble understanding the instructions. Also, if I wanted to remove the dark pink popcorn stitches and just go right to the white corners, how would I go about it? Thanks!

    I stumbled across this pattern on Pinterest – something about it sparked a memory of a pattern I saw in a Mollie Makes a couple of issues ago, went and check and they are both by you!!!!
