Twylight posted a question in Crochet HelpHello. I have a granny square inquiry. I'm making a valance for my kitchen window. I've made several sunflower granny squares, and was thinking to put one at the bottom, next row would be 2, next 3, and so forth, with a square in the middle of the top to attach the two sides. I have no problem connecting squares together, my question is this: Is there any way to attach granny squares to a single/double/triple ect. stitch? Say you're making a row by row throw blanket and want to add squares to the design, is this possible? I can figure out how to attach the top and bottom of the square, it's the middle stitches that are giving me fits trying to keep everything straight. I don't even know if what I'm attempting is even possible, but any help would be totally appriciated. Thank you.

katyallen815 posted a topic in Free Original Patternsreposting this as i inadvertanlty deleted it a while back, and have gotten some inquiries about it, so went looking for a copy, luckily had one stored on my computer, so here goes, one more time, and thanks to all those asking about it!! It is now published too in the Crochet Pattern Calendar too, isn't that cool!! here goes.... Katie’s Flower pattern square... Sunflower/Daisy flower pattern. With brown, Chain 4, join with sl st to form a ring. Ch 3, and do 15 more dc in ring. (the chain three counts as the first double crochet, here and throughout.) Join to the top of the turning chain with a sl st. End off brown. (16 dc) Row 2. Join Yellow in any stitch, and Ch. 4, (counts as 1 dc, ch 1) *1 dc, ch 1 in each dc around, (16 dc and 16 ch 1 spaces.) join with sl st to top of turning ch . Sl st over one to first ch 1 space. Round 3, Ch 3, and 1 dc in the same space. Ch 1. In next ch 1 space *2 dc , ch 1* and Repeat from * around for a total of 16 dc groups and 16 ch 1 spaces. Join in top of turning chain, end off yellow. Row 4. Attach Green yarn in any chain one space, this will be the starting of your first corner. Ch. 3, 2 dc in same stitch. *Skip next 2 dc group. *2 sc, in next ch 1 space, sk 2 dc * repeat from * Two more times and you will be at the next corner. Corner is made with 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc. Continue down next side, same as above, doing *2 sc, sk next 2 dc * three times along the side until reaching next corner, where you will work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in corner. Continue down each side, and when you reach the last corner, 3 dc, join to top of turning ch, end off green. Row 5. Add blue to any corner, ch 2, 1 hdc in same stitch as ch 2 . 1 hdc in each stitch along side, (Should be 12 stitches, it‘s easy to miss that first one though, as the corner hides it, but squish up the stitches of the corner, and find that first st! ) When you reach the next corner, then 2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in corner. Continue down next side, with all hdc, (12) reaching corner, 2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in that corner, Repeat sides to last corner, then 2 hdc, ch 1, join to top of turning chain, end off . Then comes the fun part, putting them all together! For the daisy, change the center ring to yellow( or black) Do the next two rows in white, and everything else stays the same. Any questions, and I’m sure there will be many, as this is the first time I have written out a pattern of mine for someone else to decipher through, I will try to help, just pm or email me. I claim this pattern as a me pattern, ha ha, and if someone somewhere has thought of it already, which is the case in most all granny’s, I assure you, I have never seen one quite like this, nor did I follow or copy any pattern when I made it up. Thanks, Good Luck!
