Watch the LEFT-HANDED video tutorial here!!


The forget-me-not flower is a symbol of enduring love and cherished memories. Capturing its beauty in crochet form is a joyful endeavor that infuses your creations with elegance and sentiment.

Gathering the Essential Tools

Before we delve into the crafting process, let's gather the essentials:

  • Yarn that resonates with the forget-me-not's delicate hues – blues, whites, and greens are perfect choices. Favorite from Ice yarns is recommended. Access it here!!
  • The trusted crochet hook (I prefer 5.0mm hook size). Find it here!!
  • A pair of scissors, always at the ready for precision.
  • A yarn needle, my trusty companion for seamless finishing.

1: Setting the Foundation with a Center Ring

Every crochet journey begins with a circle of magic. Using the calming blue yarn, I create a snug center ring and secure it with a gentle chain stitch.

2: Crafting the Forget-Me-Not Petals

With the white yarn, I embark on forming the charming forget-me-not petals. Five double crochet stitches into the center ring create the foundation, and a slip stitch completes each petal, forming a radiant circular design.

3: Embracing the Charm of the Granny Square

Switching to the soothing green yarn, I transform the circular motif into a square by crocheting single stitches. Each corner receives three single crochet stitches, weaving the floral magic into a symmetrical frame.

4: Adding Layers of Beauty

Continuing with the blue yarn, I build layers of beauty with the granny stitch pattern. Chains and clusters of double crochet stitches create a textured masterpiece that radiates the essence of the forget-me-not flower.

5: Your Creative Canvas Awaits

The beauty of this pattern lies in its versatility. Feel free to explore various color combinations, stitch counts, and sizes. Your forget-me-not flower granny square is a canvas for your imagination.

Incorporating Forget-Me-Not Flower Granny Squares into Your Projects

The Forget Me Not flower granny squares you create can be incorporated into an array of projects:

  • Enchanting blankets and throws
  • Graceful scarves and shawls

Nurturing Your Crocheted Creations

Caring for your crocheted wonders is essential. I recommend gentle hand washing in cold water with mild detergent, followed by careful reshaping and flat drying to preserve their allure.
