Asterales Granny Square

The Asterales Granny Square is a design a long time in the making. I first designed the flowery centre back in 2015. Since then, I had squared it off a couple of times but wasn’t happy with the result for one reason or another. Fast forward to September 2021 when I felt the need to try one more time and voila! We have Asterales.


The pattern is written for one colour as you see in my sample, but I’ve also included 37 different colour ways devised by some lovely folks you can use as is or as inspiration for your own colour play.

The pattern includes:

  • written pattern in both UK & US terminology
  • chart - right-handed and left-handed
  • link to video - right handed and mirrored for left-handers
  • A full glossary of all stitches and techniques used
  • 37 colour options along with yarn and hook details for each

Asterales Granny Square Size

When made with 8 ply/DK/light worsted yarn and a 4.5 mm hook the Asterales granny square measures 30 cm/12 inches square.

You will need: 

For my sample I used:

Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton
Fibre: 100% cotton
Weight: 8 ply / DK / light worsted
Yardage: 485 m / 531 yds per 200 g
Colour: Parchment
Amount used: 54 g – 131 m / 144 yds
Hook: 4.5 mm


The 37 alternate colour ways included state yarn weights, hook sizes and resulting square size for each option.

Asterales

Loved making my first Asterales square with this design! Easy to follow.

Had some trouble with the beginning/end flower point. Will make another square based on this design and hopefully will figure out how to make it look better. I have not blocked it yet.

Inspired by the Loopy Stitch warm color Salutations pic (Instagram Jan 14) using Style craft DK yarn.

Flower granny square

Love this pattern as you can do whatever colour combination you’d like and in any ply wool. Also love your tips on beginning with the magic circle, invisible join and not using chain stitch to commence rows. Very happy I watched the video but found this hard to follow as couldn’t see how to do stitches properly.

A great, unique square

I'm currently using Asterales for my 2022 temperature blanket and dividing the rows in a way so that one square is equivalent to one week. The video instructions really helped me with my first square!

Asterales

I love this pattern. It is so easy to follow yet the result is incredibly intricate. I have only made one square so far as I am near to completing the granny square flair sampler blanket. I am not the quickest crocheter!!

Love the fact that Shelley always replies to questions or even comments from the other side of the world!!
