Flower Bud Granny Square
I have made quite a few patterns using the flower buds you could make a complete matching set for a gift to a special little girl. You can check out all the other patterns using the rose buds HERE.
The flower bud granny square works out to be 4.5 inches and can be made into a variety of different colours. There's so many things you can make with granny squares. Afghans, sweaters, and more! I can't wait to see what people make with their own granny squares. Please feel free to share
