Sweet Baby Flowers Granny Square 1

This is one version of a granny square I made from my Sweet Baby Flowers pattern.   It is a cute little pattern with a simple granny finishing.

It is 5 1/2  by 5 1/2, though if you went another row, you’d probably get an even 6 inches square.

***Warning, warning…I crochet tightly so this is how it turned out size wise for me….. your mileage may vary 😉

To start, I made one Sweet Baby Flower in Mint, changing to Pink, then changing to white.  You can follow a more detailed tutorial for making the flower on the Sweet Baby Flowers page  and then pick up at Rnd 5 in pattern below or just follow the pattern below..
