"Nothing says sunshine and happiness quite like sunflowers! This lovely and easy to make blanket is made up of sunflower granny squares, and the pattern contains lots of photos to guide you. Adjust the size of the blanket by making more/less squares - so you can make a baby blanket or a large afghan! It is perfect for any season, and it makes a beautiful gift for any occasion! Crochet one now with this FREE pattern!"
Chains do not count as stitches in the stitch count throughout the pattern.
Square will initially curl upwards while you are crocheting it; this can be adjusted by stretching the square considerably when finished (pulling from corners outward until piece lays flat). In Rnd 7 of Sunflower Square, you may wish to chain 8 instead of 7, if your work is curling too much.
Throw blanket in this pattern consists of 24 squares (4 across, 6 down). Blanket size can be adjusted by adding/reducing number of squares.
