DAISY GRANNY Square Crochet FREE Pattern

afghans, granny squares, daisy, free crochet patterns,

Time to use up your odd balls of stashed yarns, discontinued yarns and odd colours. One of the best ways to use up that stash of yarn is to start making some colourful granny squares.

I am making my DAISY GRANNY squares using Bendigo Woollen Mills Alpaca yarn. I had some remnants of black and cream, as well as 1 x 200g ball of Geranium and 1 x 200g ball of Fawn.

I am not sure how long it will take me to finish my squares because whilst I am travelling, I don't get much time to crochet.

So, to get you all started, here is the pattern for DAISY GRANNY square A. (square B is available in the download pdf pattern)

You can mix and match your colours, alternate the squares or choose either Square A or Square B for your project.

The DAISY GRANNY Pattern is written below OR you can download the FREE pdf PATTERN from my online stores:
