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?
