So here we are, ready to start our crochet along. However before we get to the January crochet along granny square pattern let’s learn a little bit more about the afghan we’re making. Every month I’ll give you a new floral inspired granny square pattern. The squares will be 8″x8″ and you will need to make four of each pattern. Twelve months multiplied by 4 squares each month will give us a total of 48 squares. The blanket will be 8 squares long by 6 squares wide or 64″L x 48″W. If you wish to make a smaller blanket, feel free. Want to make a pillow instead, go for it. I’m simply providing one option of what you can make with our granny squares but don’t let that lock you in. Be as creative as you like!

If you missed the original post on the supplies you’ll need, you can find it here. Now, on to our pattern! For the month of January, we will be making an Anemone. This is a very simple pattern. However, as we go the patterns will get more difficult, but nothing that someone with intermediate crochet skills can’t handle. So let’s get started!
