Daisy Granny Square

A few months ago a friend of mine sent me this picture and asked if I might be able to make it for her daughter.


I did a little research and found the pattern at this blog:  http://tillietulip.blogspot.com/2012/06/to-beg-chain-ch-5-and-join-to-form.html

If you want to make the afghan you can find it there, but you’ll have to follow a second link in the blog for continuing the block after the daisy in done.

She wanted the colors the same as they are in the picture.  I used Red Heart’s Bright Yellow for the center and White for the daisies.  I used I Love This Yarn’s Turquoise, Peacock, and Graymist for the other colors.  The textures are different, but I think it made the flower pop against the soft background.

For the edging I used the shell stitch from this page:  http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/08/5-crochet-edges-you-should-know/?ext=Pinterest_Crocheting_OP_Blog_13_2016-02-01&maid=89998


I made this afghan pretty long.  The girl for whom I made it is tall.  I wanted to be sure she could wrap up in it and feel cozy!


This afghan has probably gotten more comments from people who’ve seen me working on it than any other I’ve done.  It got my granny’s approval!  She has been asking me for the pattern.
