Free crochet granny square patterns: April 2014BAMCAL #2

It's hard to believe such pretty granny squares are free patterns!  Isn't it nice that the designers are so generous to do that?

Free crochet pattern: Fresh Air 6" Granny

This first square is a CAL pattern, meaning it was voted on by the group to be the “official” CAL 6” square for April.   It worked up quickly and easily, and the design is quite interesting.

The daffodil granny square is an optional one I chose.  It was as fun to make as it looks, and actually quite easy!

The pattern used a stitch called a “crossed double crochet (xdc)" to make the trumpet, which was new to me.  I loved that stitch, and hope to be able to crochet it again or incorporate it in one of my own designs.

Daffodowndillies 6" Granny SquareI made a few customizations:  added stamens and “frill” to the trumpet.  Added rows to bring it up to 6” because I use Caron Simply Soft yarn, which is a thin worsted, and a size G (4.0mm) hook.  If you go to find the pattern, scroll down to see the details in my notes.
