Free pattern: Aster Flower Granny Square

Aster Flower Granny Square, free crochet pattern in Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn by Underground Crafter | Like its namesake, the Aster Flower Granny Square will brighten up any motif project while adding texture and depth. #madewithmichaels #MakeItWithMichaelsThis is the first in a series of floral granny squares I’ve been working on over the past few weeks. The Aster Flower Granny Square is inspired by the aster flower. Unlike some of the floral granny squares I’ve designed in the past, this one uses the “traditional granny square” background. I used the yarn I had leftover from the Sleeping Kitty Lovey.
