Let's Get Crafting: The Daisy Granny Square

Starting with the Center Circle

Begin by creating a magic ring and securing it. This circle will serve as the center for our lovely daisy granny square.

Adding the First Color Round

In this step, we'll work a round of double crochets around the center circle using your chosen background color.

Blooming the Daisy Petals

Creating the daisy petals is where the magic happens! We'll use treble crochets to form the charming petals that give your blanket its floral flair.

Introducing the Second Color Round

Once the petals are in place, let's add another round of double crochets to frame the petals and prepare for the granny square corners.

Completing the Classic Granny Square

Finish off your granny square by adding the remaining rounds, including the corners and spaces that give your blanket its iconic texture.

Bringing Your Daisy Granny Squares Together

Once you've created a collection of daisy granny squares, it's time to join them together. You can choose your favorite joining method, whether it's a simple slip stitch or a more intricate technique.

Assembling Your Beautiful Blanket

With your rows of joined granny squares ready, it's time to assemble your blanket. Whether you opt for a neat border or prefer the rustic look, your creation will radiate warmth and charm.
