The Granny Square
The Dainty Daisy Granny Square was inspired by a vintage crochet blanket that used to rest on the back of a loveseat at my family’s camp. I remember using this blanket as a kid, and letting my hands rest on those delicate daisies. I’m not sure who made the blanket (I will need to find out!) but it is so beautiful! I’m not really sure what made me think about it, maybe spring flowers in bloom – I’m not sure!
It’s probably been a good 15 years since I’ve even seen this blanket, waaay before I was ever crocheting so I unfortunately have not idea how it was constructed. I was playing around with daisy designs trying to make something similar but I just couldn’t get it and I’ve never seen another pattern like it.
As a result of trial and error, the Dainty Daisy Granny Square was born. This square is just going to have to do for now until I can get my paws on the original blanket!
Though I love my little square and think it’s cute, it just doesn’t do the original blanket justice. From what I remember it was not a granny square design. I will definitely report back if I ever see the original again OR get my hands on that pattern!
For this project I used the lovely Caron Simply Soft in colors Sunshine, Soft Green and White.
I chose this yarn for its beautiful colors and soft squishy feel. Any blanket made with this yarn will make you want to wrap up and never leave the couch!

- Caron Simply Soft in colors Sunshine, Soft Green and White (amounts will vary depending on how many squares you make)
- 5.0 mm crochet hook (I use this set)
- Each square measures to approximately 2.5 by 2.5 inches
- ch – chain
- double crochet
- half double crochet
- sc – single crochet
- sl st – slip stitch
- st – stitch
- YO – yarn over
Start with color Sunshine.
Round 1: In magic loop, ch1 (does not count as a stitch), and make 8 sc, join round with 1st sc using a sl st (8)
Cut yarn, fasten off.
Tip: Make your squares in batches of 5 or 10. Meaning, make 5 or 10 of the flower centers at a time before moving onto the second and third rounds. Batching your squares will help you move forward on your project quicker because you get the instant gratification of completing a bunch of squares at once!
Attach color White in any stitch
Round 2: First petal (note this differs slightly from the proceeding petals)
Chain 3, *YO, insert hook into stitch, draw up a loop, YO, pull through 1st two loops on hook; repeat from * 2 more times into the same stitch. YO, pull through all 4 loops on hook. Chain 2.
Remaining Petals – in next stitch: *YO, insert hook into stitch, draw up a loop, YO, pull through 1st two loops on hook; repeat from * 3 more times into the same stitch. YO, pull through all 5 loops on hook. Chain 2.
Repeat the above Remaining Petals instructions 6 more times.
You should now have 8 petals.
Join with 1st petal of the round with a slip stitch.
Cut yarn and fasten off.
Round 3: In any chain space, attach Soft Green and chain 5 (counts as a dc and ch2), make 3 dc in same space, make 3 hdc in next ch space, *(make 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch sp, make 3 hdc in next ch sp; repeat from * 2 more times; make 2 dc in 1st corner stitch, join round using slip stitch into the 3rd ch of the starting ch, sl st into ch sp.
Cut yarn and fasten off.

Love this pattern! Do you have a video to show how to crochet the squares together and how many to make for different sized blankets?
Hi Emilee! Thanks so much! I do not yet, but I hope to get to get this post out soon!
Also wondering about a pattern for assembly of a blanket
Not yet, but hope to get it out soon! Thanks! 🙂
Yes! You can find that tutorial here: https://justbcrafty.com/2020/04/dainty-daisy-granny-squares-how-to-join-and-add-a-border.html
Vous placez chaque carré envers sur envers et vous faites un tour de ms. Le rendu sera très joli !
Great tutorial! Very easy to understand. And the video is so helpful too. Thank you
Hi Ursula! Thanks so much, I’m so glad you enjoyed the tutorial!
I’ve had my eye on this pattern for a while now. I even bought all the yarn, but I don’t want to commit until you post a video of how to put them together. Are you planning on still making that video? I really hope so as this would be a beautiful gift for a newborn. I appreciate it!!
Brittany, I love Daisy’s and I am going to make this for my bed. I would like to know how many squares to make Queen size blanket.
I have made many squares and really appreciate your tutorial. I am hoping to complete it as a baby blanket.
Is there a good reference giving instructions, dimensions, etc.
Excited to finish. Thanks
So, any update on assembly of this darling blanket?
I’m also looking for this. How many squares needed for different sizes blankets? How much yarn of each color needed? Pretty new to crocheting blankets so not enough experience to figure out yet. Thank you for lovely pattern.
Thanks Melinda! I’m actually working on this right now! Hoping to get this post out next week. It will cover, joining, border, and amount of squares for different sized blankets!
Hi, I love this pattern. can you tell me how many squares you get from one skein of each yarn so I can figure how how much yarn I need? Thanks!
Lovely! I posted in several crochet fb groups looking for completed example and it garnered a ton of attention. I linked your site where I saw the tutorial. Looking forward to update.
Hi! Love the pattern! I am currently working on a throw size blanket (70 squares in)! Is there a way to add this pattern onto Ravelry??
I’ve just added it to ravelry! You can find it here and link up to it! Can’t wait to see your squares! Happy crocheting!
Hello! This pattern is absolutely beautiful! I’ve never made a blanket before as I tend to stick to amigurumi. Do you need to weave in 6 ends per square or is there a way to do it with less ends to weave in? As an amigurumi artist I find it weird that there will be so many ends to weave in, but that might just be the norm for blankets. Thank you so much for your help!
Hi Haley! Yes – with most granny squares or any item with color changes there will likely be many ends to weave in. To help a bit, you can crochet on top of your tails as you go and it kind of weaves in your ends along the way, but I find its much more secure to weave in your tails individually. It is definitely a labor of love lol! To help manage it, I’ll sometimes weave in my ends after completing each square so that I don’t have a million left to weave in at the end! Hope this helps!
Thank you! I think this will be my first baby blanket! I’m super excited to try it ?
I have also found that if I tuck in my tails as I change yarn color, I don’t have an overwhelming task to do at the end. Every time you change colors, you have one tail when you attach the color and one when you fasten off the color. I have found that if I take care of them as I go, then when I’m done, I’m done.
Love this!! Thanks for sharing!
