Crochet Flower squares are popular crochet projects that are quick to make and provide an elegant, timeless crochet work.

This pattern is beginner friendly and the square works up really quickly..

Skills required: 
Understand the basics of working in the round.
Joining different yarn colors and how to end and finish rows.
The pattern is not a step-by-step tutorial, per-round images are available as well as a stitch diagram

Techniques used: 
All crochet squares are worked in the round, ensure that your final row count per side is correct or you will struggle to join your block at a late stage.
Gauge is not essential, but it's best to stick to the same yarn weight and crochet hook throughout making your squares or your squares will not match up.
Work ends, as you go will help you at the end when it comes to finishing the blanket unless you love spending a day at least to work on loose ends.

Note for all squares

Ensure that each side of a square has the required stitch count, according to the pattern instruction count, this will ensure that joining your squares will be simple and straightforward.

What you might need for completing this project

I add these pattern requirements as a simple guide to what I have used in the example pattern as well as some suggestions that I might think will work if the required materials are not obtainable. I often get requests on what yarn I have used and what color, so I hope this section helps.

    Recommended Yarn for this project:

    Lightweight yarn like DK yarn, or double knitting yarn, or referred to by some crochet councils as the 3/Light category. You might see DK yarn labeled as 8-ply yarn in Europe and Australia.

    You can use any yarn of your choice, just note that by using lighter yarn and a smaller one, each square and blanket size will be overall smaller, by using a heavier yarn and larger hook, the squares will be larger and the overall blanket size will be bigger. 

    Hooks

    The example pattern uses a: 3.5 mm / US 4 /E-4 fo the example yarn.
    But feel free to use the hook that suits your preferred yarn.

    This pattern is written and charted using standard US crochet terminology.
     

Square size made with 3.5 mm hook : 11 x 11 cm / 5 x 5 inches
Square size made with 2.5 mm hook : 8 x 8 cm / 3.2 x 3.2 inches

Just note that using more lightweight yarn and a smaller hook, the granny square and blanket size will be overall smaller, and using a heavier yarn and larger hook, the squares will be larger and the overall blanket size will be larger.

Pattern instructions

Weaving in ends Tip !!
Try and work your ends in as you go, that way, you have way fewer ends to work away when it comes to combining your squares. 
When finishing off a row, I tend to leave a longer tail when cutting the yarn, after finishing a row and fastening off. 
With the next row, I then work in the tail underneath the beginning stitch of the next row, to the point that only a small tail sticks out, I then simply pull the embedded tal slightly tight and cut the end off, - and that makes working on a lot of squares a lot easier.
