Granny Square CAL (Week Four)

I can't believe we are on week four already. If you are just joining us you can see the rules on how to enter to win a free pattern in Week One. You will also find the links to all the weeks squares in that post. You can always catch up on these at the end if you would like to make a queen size blanket like me. Right so lets get onto the squares.

10th Granny Square

I used DK/light worsted weight and a 5.00 mm hook. The square following the pattern came out 6 1/2 inches. I needed to do one more row to achieve a 8 inch square but you may need to do two if you are a tight crocheter.

Round 7: Join yarn in any corner sp, *(3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) into corner sp, ch 1, skip 3 st, 3 dc into space between 3th and 4th st, ch 1, skip 4 st, 3 dc into space between 7th and 8th st, ch 1, skip 3, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, skip 3, 3 dc between 13th and 14th st, ch 1, skip 4, 3 dc between 18th and 19th st, ch 1* Repeat between * 3 more times. Join to first dc with a sl st.

Finish off and weave in all ends.

11th Granny Square

I added two more rounds in the granny square pattern which you should be used to by now :)

12th Granny Square

A quick note: The pattern says on round 1 to do 6 bobble stitches but the photo clearly shows 8 so I decided to do 8 to try and get it to lay flat. The next round will also be 8 bobbles.

I did 3 more rounds in the granny pattern to get 8 inches.


  1. I just finished gs #12 for the second time because I found the translated directions very confusing. That being said, I basically followed the directions for making the bobble stitch in the first round and added 2 bobbles for a total of 8.
    In the petal round, I ended up reducing the pattern of hdc/dc stitch combos to accommodate the tiny spaces I had to work with---basically working the pattern to match the picture of the finished square.
    the 5-color block didn't work for me, so I made the back of the petal round(round 2 I think) the same as the center of the flower.
    I hope adapting a pattern is OK. Thanks for organizing this an inspiring me to try new things--even with a simple granny square!
