"Several years ago I hosted a crochet-along for a stitch sampler blanket and one of the squares was the Blooming Granny Square. In the CAL we did small squares as the learning swatch size. Well, one of my contactors loved the look of the small blooming granny square so she made several, seamed them together then added the same border we used for the stitch sampler blanket to her new blanket and voila! The minute I saw it I knew I needed to purchase the sample and publish it as an option for that very cute square. So, let's say thank you to Jennifer Purtee for her vision and enjoy this fun pattern. If you find you are having trouble with the stitch pattern you can always watch the video for the square I did for the CAL. It is a a step-by-step video tutorial that can be found on the Marly Bird YouTube Channel. By the way, have you subscribed to my YouTube Channel yet?"

This is a great blanket for Babys tummy time. As Baby begins to explore their world, having bright colors and textures encourages sensory development. These small squares arent difficult to work up, but if you need some help, the designer has posted a number of links to video tutorials for the Blooming Granny Square as well as the component stitches.

I, too, love the look of the entire blanket being done up with the puffy flower granny squares. I can think of a million different color options. You can go tonal in a neutral like taupe, oatmeal, mocha. Or high fashion with a dark gray background and teal,bright coral, and indigo flowers.
