~ ruffley granny square ~


Materials:
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic yarn (I used RHSS)
- I hook

Notes:
- I crochet tight so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- you can make this granny any size that you would like - just crochet however many granny stitch rounds you would like and then add Rnd 4 and the ruffle rnd.

Directions:
Rnd 1: Ch 4, 2 dc in 4th ch from hook. (Ch 2, 3 dc in same ch) 3 times. Ch 2, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.

Rnd 2: Sl st in next 2 dc, sl st in corner space. (Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp. *Ch 1, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next corner sp. Repeat from * 3 times. Ch 1, join as before.

Rnd 3: Sl st in next 2 dc, sl st in corner sp. (Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp. *Ch 1, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next corner sp. Repeat from * 2 more times. Ch 1, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, join as before.

Rnd 4: Ch 1, sc in same st. Sc in each dc and ch 1 sp around with 3 sc in each corner sp. Join with a sl st to front loop only of 1st sc.

Ruffle Rnd: (Work this rnd in front loops only) Ch 3, 2 dc in same st, 3 dc in each sc around. Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.

Sl st or sew squares together from the back in the free back loops.

~~this square would work with no-ruffle squares nicely - just place them in a checkerboard pattern.  i.e. ruffle square, plain square, ruffle square, plain square - and then switch the order of the squares for the next row.

  6. This is so cute!!!! Ruffles are in style. Right now I am making blankets for Project Linus, some little girl will love to get this blanket. I think I had better hide these blankets from the girls in my family. This will make a great birthdays, Mother's, or just because gifts I won't be able to make the require numbers for the girls for
    Christmas. Thank you for posting. Gotta get more yarn

    1. Hi there. When you work the ruffle round in the front loops of Rnd 4 (the sc round), the back loops of Rnd 4 are left free (unworked) - these are the back loops that will be used to connect the squares. You can either whipstitch or slip stitch the squares together. :)

  9. This pattern really caught my eye and I copied it. This looks similar to a rag quilt but much nicer. I do quilting but not rag quilts and I love crochet. This is a beauty indeed. Thank you so much for posting this pattern - a real beauty indeed.
