Super Excited - Meet Fi's Flowery Granny!

Well, well, well, there's just obviously FAR too many hours in a day - I spent last night inventing a granny square (whilst watching Psych on telly).

I wanted some cushion covers to match my (as yet still UFO) ripple blanket - picture in left sidebar.
I, of course, went straight to Attic 24 to get one of Lucy's patterns, but I really wanted one that looked like a flower, with a nice raised look in the middle.

So, I got out all my crochet pattern books, went through all the squares, hexagons and circles, but still couldn't find quite what I was looking for.

Anyway, the end result was, I had to come up with my own (my first crochet design :) )


Meet Fi's Flower Granny!!

When I get some time, I will do a how-to for it (might even try and upload it to ravelry, haven't done that before, so another first.)

Anyway, I still have to make enough for a cushion yet, so not sure how housework is looking today...



  1. Looks great, Fi. Well done!
    I'm going to have a go at it when you've written the pattern.

  2. Well shoot I wish I could think of something mean and ornery to say, like you usually do to me, but I just can't! I LOVE IT! Can't wait for the tutorial. I've been thinking of starting a granny blanket. I don't have one. Can't decide if I'd finish it or not.
