Daisy Granny Square Pillow + Blanket – Free Pattern

Looking for a unique way to spruce up a guest room, nursery, or sun room? We’ve found the perfect way to accent that cozy spot you want to highlight in your home: this Daisy Granny Square pillow and blanket. This free pattern is customizable in both size and color, whether you’re looking for a forest theme granny square (in beige, brown, and green), a beach theme pillow (sand dollars with blue, yellow, and green background), or a monotone or ombre piece of decor. Remember, however, that this means you might need to add additional materials or choose different colors or types of yarn.

To make one of the granny square pillows with the daisy motif, you’ll need to know the following stitches:

  • Chain (ch)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Double crochet (dc)
  • Double crochet cluster (2dcc or 3dcc)

For the granny square blanket, you’ll need to know:

  • Chain (ch)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Magic circle
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Double crochet (dc)
  • Triple/treble crochet (tc)
  • Half double crochet (hdc)

For both projects, you’ll need yarn (dependent on the size of your project), a hook in a corresponding size, a pair of scissors, and a tapestry needle to weave in the ends. For the pillow, the pattern recommends using cotton yarn, with a main neutral color to connect all the squares. For the blanket, you’ll want a soft yarn, with enough of one color to connect the squares and add edging. These are both great patterns to use as stashbusters, or to ask for yarn from each family member to co-create a family blanket for the living room or vacation home. They would also make the perfect gift set for a new baby, a toddler’s birthday, a special family photo shoot, or for someone recuperating from illness.

Both of these patterns can be found on the Color ‘N Cream blog, at this page (pillow) and this page (blanket). You can also follow the creator on social media, either Facebook or Instagram.
