I love granny squares so much! They’re fun to make and they can make you feel crazy productive! It’s one thing to crochet a gigantic afghan, and totally another to afghan 10 squares and then join them together – it seems so much quicker for some reason!

So today I’m going to share with you the pattern for this Bobble Floral Granny Square I’ve dreamed up to go along with this amazing Crochet Along I’ve been so lucky to join up with! Now this is my first attempt at writing a pattern (normally I do a pictorial) but with so many changes I thought it was time to give this a go. Feel free to POST IN THE COMMENTS if you have any problems with the pattern or know of a way I can improve it :)

    Quick Question- I think this is a great idea. Which blogs have done a square already? I am trying to catch up.

    Hi Allison, In round four.
    when you form the corner, where do you put the 3 double crochet?

      Hi, Julie. At the corner you’ll do three double crochets, chain 3 and then three more double crochets in the same gap. Does that help?
