Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Yarn

Flower Granny

Flower Granny Squares can really dress up an afghan, or add a beautiful accent to a project. I often refer to crochet squares as building blocks for Crocheters.

This Granny Square is made with our very own Signature Logo Flower. However, any crochet flower with 8 loopy petals will work wonderfully.

Materials, Tools & Gauge for the Flower Granny

This section is a little different than others. Making the flower can really be done with any yarn, and your hook will always be the same as you used with the flower. This is a perfect stash buster as it only takes a few yards. Your actual yardage will vary depending on the size of your granny square, and the fiber you use. Other supplies include a scissors and yarn needle. And your gauge is not important, and will vary depending on your yarn.


Our flower has 3 rounds of chain stitch petals. You can make your flower with any yarn, and any color combination.

You will be working into the back (largest) petals.
