  • granny squire thanks for the free pattern i have been trying to find some free patterns i am a user of lions brand love the pound of love yarn especially for baby blankets as i crochet for charity a charity called FROM THE HEART OUT OF RICHMOND,VA. I now live in midway ,ga. and take my items back there when i go twice a year thanks h chalker

  • Where can I get the pattern for the floral granny square.

  • I am unable to print the 15 photos depicting the Rnd 1 thru Rnd 5. It would be most helpful if this is possible. Please advise. Thank you.

    • We are working on providing printable PDF versions of the tutorials. Looks for that option in the coming weeks!

  • I’m looking for a granny square to make an Afghan or throw. I love the look of this square. I don’t know the size of the square, therefore I cannot figure how many squares to make. I’d also love to know how much yardage of yarn I should purchase. My favorite yarn is Vanna’s Choice.

    • The square shown measures 6″ x 6″ and used 12 grams (26 yards) of worsted weight. The size and yardage will change depending on the yarn and hook used.

  • When I was a little girl my grandmother had made a wool Afghan like this using all green with a yellow flower. I have very little memories of her because I was 3 when she died. My mother would put this afghan on me when you was sick. I’m almost 60, and just recently started to crochet but have been a knitter for years. Seeing this pattern brought back to mind that heavy warm blanket. Now I have the pattern…thanks to lionbrand.

  • Are all three granny squares the same size if you use the same yarn and hook for all?

    • The two squares in Basic stitch (Floral Granny and Daisy) are the same size with the same yarn & hook. I plan on doing another version of the Sunflower to match these two.
