Hi, my crochet lover friends. Welcome to the first week of the Floral Garden Granny Square Blanket CAL

This blanket is made by joining lovely floral crochet squares together, which feature bobble drop stitches. Each square crocheted individually and joined together at the end. The blanket worked up with two colors. While I design this as a baby blanket, you can adjust the pattern to any size, throw to bedspread.

  • The square pattern is divided into 2 parts to make it more convenient. 
  • To begin the CAL we will make the middle of the square first. 
  • After finishing all the small squares in this part 1, we can start to crochet remaining rounds in part 2 in next week to complete and finish the 7″ x 7″ square. 
  • For the middle of the square I used my Bobble Drops Flower Granny Square Pattern previously released on Crochet For You Blog. I have changed the pattern a little bit for making this blanket. This is a lovely granny square about 4”x 4” size, which is one of the most popular granny squares I have designed.

These little squares fun to make

This granny square is easy and fast to crochet with only 4 rounds. I used 2 contrasting colors to pop the flower out from the background. The finished size of the middle square is 4″ x 4″.

You will find the written pattern with step by step photos and video tutorial below.

Decide first how many squares you will need

As I said in the main post, this blanket can be adjusted to any size you need. Find all the details about sizing and yardage and how many squares you will need in the main page. I made 20 squares for a 32.5″ x 38.5″ size blanket. I used Ice Yarns Saver in 2 colors, 2 skeins of each color.

Skill Level Intermediate

MATERIALS I used

#4 Medium / Worsted weight
2 skeins of Ice Yarn Saver – Candy Pink (100% Dralon Acrylic,200g = 360 yds/330 m)
2 skeins of Ice Yarn Saver – Light Beige (100% Dralon Acrylic,200g = 360 yds/330 m)
– US 1-9 (5.5mm) crochet hook
– Tapestry needle for weaving ends

Gauge: 13hdc x 8 rows = 4″x4″ with US 1-9, 5.5mm crochet hook.

Abbreviations / special stitches (US term)

  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • st = stitch
  • ch-sp = chain- (number of chains) space
  • beg = beginning
  • *to ; = repeat * to the instructions.
  • C1 = color 1 Candy Pink
  • C2 = color 2 Light Beige

Special stitches:

  • fpbobble =  yarn over, insert the hook from front to back to front again around the post of next st, yarn over, pull back loop through the st, [yarn over, insert the hook from front to back to front again around the post of the same st, yarn over, pull back loop through the st] 2 times, yarn over, pull back through 6 loops on the hook, yarn over, pull back through 2 loops on the hook.

Notes: When you make these squares for the blanket, you have to change the color 3 times to make one square. So the quickest and easiest way is to crochet all the squares you need in one color first, fasten off and weave all the ends in each. Then you can add the next color to each square. I think this method is easier than finishing one square with all 3 colors at once.
