Loving My Granny Roses

These are F.U.N. to crochet!

I have a small travel pillow that will look adorable with a Granny Rose cover. 

 Six rose squares for each side is just about the right size.

I crocheted nine rose squares last night.

I can't stress how easy and fun these flowers are to do. 

 And I'm a slow crocheter. 

 I'm left-handed crocheting right -handed and I just can NOT raise my left forefinger up in the air the way fast crocheters do (i.e. watch Astri in her videos). 

 Boy can she crochet fast.

I'm using Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn scraps in rose, blue and yellow shades with green leaves and the white borders.  

And a size H hook.

I better quit blogging and return to crocheting three more rose squares. 

 Then on to joining them together.  

A huge shout out {{THANK YOU!}} to Astri for sharing this lovely pattern (here) with us.

  1. Sandy,
    I saw your red crocheted rose on my blog, and I had to come and see it. I love it! These flowers are so pretty, and you have such a talent creating them.

  3. How beautiful these are. These are planned for my future crochetings as well. Thanks for introducing me to Apple Blossom Dreams. Blessings.

  4. Oh those are lovely. Well done!

  5. Muy lindas, y muy buena explicación, cariños.

  6. Sandy, these are so pretty! I visited Astri and have got to get some wool, I would love a lap blanket made with these roses. xo

  7. Your roses are so pretty!! You seem to be pretty fast at it yourself. Pillows are so much fun to make. They are at the top of my favorite things to make. Can't wait to see this finished. You're going to love it.

  8. Those granny roses are lovely!!

  9. Now that is a great project I make using a lot of my Simple Soft yarn I have and not sure what to make with it. :) They do look yummy....
