This granny square pattern combines puff stitches and TC shells with traditional granny trebles to create a flower square that is pretty but modern. It would be perfect as part of a blanket or throw.

The pattern I’ve linked to makes a 10x10 cm (4”x4”) square if the suggest yan (DMC Natura Just Cotton is used, but this can easily be sized up by using either a heavier yarn than stated or by adding several more rounds of granny trebles.

The shades of Natura Just Cotton I’ve used are Azur, Orquidea, Ivory, Aswan, and Gris Argent (less than 1 skein required for each colour). By using 100% cotton yarn, the resulting square is durable and can be machine washed.
