Free pattern: Flower Loom Granny Square

Flower Loom Granny Square, free crochet pattern with video tutorial by Underground Crafter

I’ve mentioned before that granny squares are my favorite go-to projects for stress relief. They’re also super portable, so grannies are perfect for commuting or traveling, too.

This post contains affiliate links. The Flower Loom and yarn for this project were generously provided by Boye and Lion Brand, respectively.

Back in April, I got my hands on a Boye Flower Loom for the first time. After making several yarn flower craft projects, I decided to try “squaring up” the flower into a granny square. You can find a video tutorial for making a yarn flower on a Flower Loom, along with more yarn flower projects, here. This pattern also includes its own video tutorial at the end.

These grannies can be easily turned into a blanket by joining them together in rows to reach your desired width, and then joining the rows together to reach your desired length. (Tip: Weave in the ends as you go, rather than waiting until the blanket is finished. Trust me on this one!)

Crochet Pattern: For Kyle Baby Blanket

For Kyle Baby Blanket, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterI love ripples. But there’s something about having a clean, straight edge on a blanket that I really enjoy. So for this baby blanket, I chose a stitch pattern that creates the appearance of a ripple when striped, but keeps the edges straight.

As my long-time readers know, I donate several crochet projects each year. In December, on a very stormy and rainy afternoon (hence, the lack of photographic evidence), I took a stack of baby blankets to the post office to mail to Kyle, South Dakota to the Oyate Teca Project, one of the many programs you can learn about in the Friends of the Pine Ridge Reservation website. This blanket, designed for donation, was one of those in the box.
