granny square sampler afghan- week 9
How is everyone doing on the granny square sampler? Is everyone up to date on their squares? I know some have been crocheting on car trips and I am so jealous, I get car sick when I try. All that wasted passenger seat time!
This week I have a treat to share with you for our assignment today. I asked Erin if she would be willing to jump in and share a granny square for the sampler, and she graciously agreed. This week’s square is a sweet dimensional flower she chose for us.

Three Dimensional Granny Square Flower- Make 3 of these.
The original pattern for this granny square can be found here. Follow this pattern as written thru round 5. Erin added another round to our version, which we both agreed frames the flower very nicely, and the instructions for round 6 are:
Round 6: Ch 3, * 1 dc into each of the next three dcs done in round 5, 1 dc into the ch-1 space that follows, 1 dc into each of the next three dcs, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the ch-1 corner space, 1 dc into each of the next three dcs, and 1 dc into the ch-1 space that follows **; repeat from * to ** 3 more times, join with a sl st into the first dc made in this round. Fasten off and break yarn.
*This granny square only adds in one twist, crocheting into the back of some of the stitches. This creates the 3 dimensional effect of the flower. Erin has provided a video to show us exactly how to do it.
Thank you Erin! Enjoy your crochet time this week everyone!
