There is no fruit without a flower! So, for the last part of our Tutti Frutti Granny Square CAL, I thought of sharing this crochet White Flower Granny Square!
This little afghan block features a white 3D flower with 8 petals, which is just the cutest for all your Spring blankets, Summer projects, or any creations for flower lovers.
If you crochet the pattern as you find it below, you’ll be able to use this flower square in combination with a classic granny square with 4 rounds, or any square of the same size.
However, you can easily make your flower granny square of the size you need by adding a few more rounds!
