21 FLOWER GRANNY SQUARES

MORE FLOWERY SQUARES FOR PROJECT CHEMO CROCHET


I’ve been slowly building up my granny square collection for donation to the lovely project for cancer patients http://www.projectchemocrochet.com/.

So I after my initial set of 24 squares (http://shyamanivas.blogspot.com/2015/01/jus-granny-squares.html), I thought I’d make different types of squares – and these are some of my flower granny squares.  I’ve added below the links / patterns I’ve used.

Some of the patterns used did not reach the required dimensions of 9” x 9” – so once I’d completed the square as per the original design, I just added a few more rounds following pattern of the last round (or last 2 rounds) till I got to our desired size specifications.

It is also heartening to note that when people heard I was doing this for Project Chemo, some of them have gone out of their way to share ideas, links and/or photos for this. Rajeshwari, Prabha, Suma...Thank you.

Materials used : A combination of our local Indian acrylic yarns (3-ply, 4-ply as well as Vardhaman Millenium DK ply)
Though you may not have this yarn, or the yarn specified in the pattern links given, you can use any yarn with a suitable hook for these lovely squares and still have a fantastic end product.

Just the name of this square made me want to try it.. and as I had lemony citrussy colours in hand.. I couldn't resist!

My square was about 5” on completion of the pattern per link – so just went around with a few more rounds with dc in each ch-sp and (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in each corner till I got our required 9” x 9” square.


3.TELESCOPING WRISTLET SQUARE

Small tweak here – after mixing (alternating) colors of adjacent squares, thought it was getting too dark – so decided to make just 6 little squares, and then add bold stripes in between them.  So the granny square pattern is from the link above – the rest is creativity.

So this beautiful sunflower-ry pattern worked out to 1/4th the size I needed.. so I just went on to make four squares, and then joined them to make one 9”x 9” square.

The video here is not in English, but its well done and self explanatory.. and hey, I think I picked up a bit of Spanish too! J  Sunflowers are just .. ooh so bright and can just brighten up your day..and for this project … truly magical crochet!
Each little square came to about 1/4th the size I’m looking for – so as before (with the Nana's flower power square), I made four of these and joined them up.  Alternatively, you could just add dc rounds all around, and make just one 9 x 9” square with one cute little sunflower in the centre for our project here.


8. SUNFLOWER SQUARE 2

This lovely pattern has both a written as well as a video version.  Here we can make four little squares and then join them together, or just make one sunflower, increase the number of rows in green, and then use a contrast one till we reach our 9” x 9” square requirement.


9. KANSAS SUNFLOWER SQUARE
