Do you like to crochet granny squares? If so, you may enjoy crocheting this flower with a mini granny square center!

Here is the link to a much larger photo of the granny flower: i41.tinypic.com/30vy9o2.jpg

Here is a list of the materials that you will need to make this flower:

Small amount of worsted weight yarn (I used a 100% cotton worsted weight "dishcloth" yarn for the flower shown. You can easily substitute with a 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn).

Size H crochet hook

Yarn needle (for weaving ends in)

Scissors

Size: This flower measures approximately 2 1/2" in diameter.

Rnd 1: Chain four, join with a slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring, chain three. Now, you will be working your stitches into the ring that you just made. Work two double crochets, chain one, three double crochets, chain one, three double crochets, chain one, three double crochets, chain one. Now, join with a slip stitch in the top chain of the beginning chain three. (You should have made a total of twelve double crochets plus four chain-one spaces).

Rnd 2: Chain one, work one single crochet in the same double crochet as joining, work three double crochets in the next double crochet, work one single crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next chain one space, work one single crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next double crochet, work one single crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next chain one space, work one single crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next double crochet, work one single crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next chain one space, work one single crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next double crochet, work one singe crochet in the next double crochet, work three double crochets in the next chain one space, join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet and fasten off work. (You will now have a total of twenty-four double crochets plus eight single crochets, or eight "petals"). You can choose to weave the ends of your work in now or you can choose to leave the ends "dangling" if you would like to attach your flower to another object.

Now that your flower is finished, you may be wondering what to do with it! Here are some suggestions:

1. Crochet two to three dozen flowers. Sew the flowers together at the centers of one or two petals to form a scarf.

2. Sew your flower to a pair of jeans.

3. Sew your flower to a bath towel.

4. Use your flower on a scrapbook page (for a smaller version of the flower, use size 10 crochet cotton and a size 5 steel crochet hook).

If you come up with a clever use for my granny flower, please let me know about it in the comment box!
