When you're working on a granny square afghan, add in some granny hexagons to switch up the look of your project. The Moroccan Garden square pattern creates beautiful boho-style floral crochet tiles. And, in the designer's own words, "this pattern also contains instructions for making half-and quarter tiles, to fill the gaps and square off your afghan perfectly. The tiles are easy to make, and after joining, you'll have a gorgeous, detailed-looking end result."

-There are 4 types of tiles to be made in this design: a full tile for the main body of the afghan, quarter tiles for the corners, half-width tiles to fill in the gaps along the side edges, and half-length tiles to fill in the gaps at the top and bottom edges.
-Two tiles are joined at a time, with a Single Crochet, working through both layers.
-Two rows of a simple Granny Stitch all around to finish off, or to provide a base for crocheting a more elaborate edging.
-This pattern was published in conjunction with a calculator that will determine how many tiles you need for ANY size afghan, as well as how many halves and quarters you'll need to fill in all the gaps around the edge to square it off. Therefor, you can make ANY size rectangle with the help of the calculator, so you can use it for afghans, blankets, scarves,bags, cushion covers, throws, shawls - the sky is the limit!
-After the blocks have been joined together to make an afghan, the afghan will be rectangular. After they are joined, they begin to form a rectangle with a wavy edge. Half-blocks are added into these spaces to produce a straight edge. (Note: there are half-blocks along all the sides, and quarter-blocks in each corner.)


Crochet Hook4.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(3) Light/DK (21-24 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet GaugeUsing the suggested hook and yarn will produce a tile size of 145mm long by 115 mm wide. Try your own combos for different sizes!

This is definitely a pattern for a more experienced person who has been crocheting for some years but would be a good challenge for a person just learning to crochet.

OMG!! This is soooooo beautiful!. The project is so colorful. I find the colors so appropriately chosen for the project. I can't stop swooning. Woooohoooo. I want to put this in my list of future projects.

So my first impression of this beautiful piece did not have me thinking for a second "granny square". It just gets better with the other pictures provided from the designer. I know that granny "squares" are so versatile and I now see that so are the other shapes of grannies. Beautiful project and very inspirational.

Granny square projects all have a special place in my heart. I love the fact that the granny square projects are so mobile and easily modified to suite your personal taste in color and yarn selections. Now with the use of different shapes of grannies, I just do not know where to start.

This Moroccan Garden pattern gives two versions of color coordinating. I like the white back ground with black outline. This gives a stain glass effect. However, I also like the various color tiles with the blue outline. This gives a festive look. I like them both. Question is, which one will I make for my first piece?

Hi, Galentine - Try the link again perhaps in a new window. I was able to open the link for the pattern. The pattern is beautiful and easy to make. I will be making this for my queen size bed but not this year. Thanks for the pattern.

I've been looking for some patterns for bed runners and I think this would be perfect. I would probably make it a row wider and of course longer so it would stretch across the bed.

Love the picture, can't get the pattern, the links broken, just says page not found.

Hi lgalentine, Thank you for the heads up - the blogger moved the project somewhere on her site. I've found the new URL and have updated the link above. The link, for reference, is here: Good luck - and post your finished project here when you're all done! :) Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I love a granny square with some variety in it so I'm not using the same color and stitches for a whole hour. I can make this afghan as big or small as I like it. I love the mix of colors! This is going to be so gorgeous when it's finished!

When I first saw this, the first thought thru my head was, yes it's pretty, but it's going to be a hard pattern. Then I read thru it and found out differently. It appears to be fairly easy. But it won't go on the bed or sofa, it will go on the wall in the hall wY where I can't seem to find anything to put in that spot.

This is gorgeous! It looks so detailed and would definitely liven up any room.

#bestideaever. This is a great pattern! Well thought out and a pleasure to work. Looks more advanced, unique, beautiful!! Thank you for such a lovely pattern)
