Batik Flower Granny Square
By Mistie Bush
July 24, 2014
I have never really been a huge fan of “granny squares” until this past year. The more I saw pretty granny squares ~ not the “traditional granny squares” the more I fell in love with them. I have crocheted several for different projects…the designs and sizes are so much more appealing to me than before. A friend of mine asked if I had a granny square pattern and that got me to thinking that I should really design my own. So, here is my very first granny square pattern. I hope you enjoy it!!
