Primrose Granny Square Pattern

The Primrose granny square is a beautiful, modern take on something that is very traditional and has stood the test of time. Granny squares are a favourite with many crocheters; they are quick, fairly simple so a great confidence booster or fairly mindless project, and look great either as a focal piece to a project or as the basis of a project. And you can use your scraps!
The amount of yarn in my scrap bucket! That’s one of the reasons we like the stitch of the week and creating little patterns to go with them.
Naming this square was difficult. We really wanted something that stood out but were torn because the flower centre really does look like a primrose. This is most definitely our take on the Primrose granny square!
Some members of our Facebook Community group are using our Primrose Granny Square pattern to create a temperature blanket for 2020. Its such a versatile square!
So, dig your scraps out and come and join us in making some of these little beauties!
Our squares measure approx. 5 inches square. You will need the following materials:
- Any #4 Worsted weight cotton (although you can use anything and the appropriate hook size for your yarn … but just remember it will affect the finished size of your piece!)
- 5mm hook
- Stitch markers optional (but highly recommended)
- Tapestry needle
Note: this is written in US terms and a Ch3 counts as a stitch.
