Once you have completed your 17 flowers (shown in flower tutorial) its time to turn them into a granny square
Once you have made your flowers pick a colour for your granny square, I chose white as the red flower really stands out against it. You can use any colour that you wish.

  • How to make a knit or crochet tote. Granny Square Hand Bag  (Turning Flowers Into Granny Squares) - Step 1
    Step 1

    FIRSTLY YOU NEED TO FIND THE SPACE BETWEEN YOUR FIRST AND LAST PETALS ON YOUR FLOWER. WHERE YOU TIED OFF YOUR YARN

  • How to make a knit or crochet tote. Granny Square Hand Bag  (Turning Flowers Into Granny Squares) - Step 2
    Step 2

    YOU THEN NEED TO FIND THE 3 CHAIN YOU STARTED YOUR FLOWER WITH, IT SHOULD BE SLIGHTLY LOOSER THAN THE TRIPPLE CROCHET

    THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL START THE GRANNY SQUARE BY ATTATCHING YOUR CONTRASTING YARN

    Step 3

    ATTATCH CONTRAST COLOUR WITH A SLIP STITCH, USING A 2.50MM CROCHET HOOK

    I CHOSE WHITE FOR CONTRAST. TO GET THE BEST EFFECT CHOOSE A COLOUR THAT WILL MAKE YOUR FLOWER STAND OUT

    EG. WHITE FLOWER, PURPLE CONTRAST
    BLACK AND ORANGE
    CRIMSON AND NAVY
    GREEN AND YELLOW

    CHOOSE ANY COLORS YOU FANCY

    TIE THE YARN OFF LOOSLY

    I AM USING A SMALLER HOOK FOR THE GRANNY SQUARE AS IT MAKES THE HOLES BETWEEN THE STICHES SMALLER AND THE GRANNY SQUARE FIRMER.

    USE A SLIGHTLY LARGER HOOK IF YOU WANT A LOOSER TENSION JUST NOTE YOUR SQUARE WILL TURN OUT SLIGHTLY LARGER.
