Well as promised I’m delighted to be able to introduce and show you my newest creation. Tutii Frutti Daisy blanket – I so love the colour combination here, and hope you do to.
The blanket is constructed from 7 rows of 7 squares across and 7 rows of 7 squares down. A total of 49 squares. Each square has a pink central daisy flower and is then surrounded by 7 different colours.
I think the colour work in this pattern is gorgeous and so very pretty and cheerful. The pattern contains explicit colour guidance for each and every square – so 49 different colour combinations.
The finished blanket measures 54“ x 54“. The blanket could be made larger or smaller by increasing or decreasing the amount of squares used.

How to crochet granny squares together.
I have recently been asked how to crochet granny squares together and
so an impromptu tutorial. The concept seems much more difficult than the
actual process is. The important things to remember are.
Lay your squares out exactly as the pattern states or as you wish them to
be crocheted together.
Always keep your squares right side facing.
I always work from right to left.
I always crochet together all horizontal rows first and then vertical rows
I always work from the bottom right hand corner and row progressing up
the way, 1 row at a time.
ch – chain
sp – space
sc – single crochet USA, dc –UK
