For any nature-lover, this Dazzling Dragonfly Granny Square makes the perfect gift - as part of a granny square crochet blanket or even maybe on its own! This crochet square is a standard granny square, but it features a raised and textured little dragonfly motif on the top of it. Work this up in springy greens and blues as shown, but you can easily tailor this to the recipient's taste and favorite color. The body and tail of the dragonfly are made while crocheting the granny square, but the wings are added on later, once you're all done, so don't forget to make them!

I like to make granny squares because they work up quickly and it does not get boring. Sure it can be a pain putting them together but the result is usually very interesting and unique. I used to be scared of dragonflies but one of the native Americans where I used to live in Tucson, Az explained me the importance of dragonflies and how they always find clean water. Now I have a new found respect for them. Thanks for the pattern.

Oh my this Dazzling Dragonfly Granny Square has me re thinking Granny Squares. I don't care to make the granny squares and having to sewing them all together. But.. with this one I am hooked! I love dragonflies and just love the 3D look of this one. After watching her video that is so well done a beginner could whip this up. I would like to make a few of these using a fine yarn and small hook to make patches. I have to give a lot of credit to the folks who do take the time to make all the granny squares and sew them together to make a beautiful afhgan. I just don't the the time or will to do that, but love some of the square patterns out there. There are other things to make with them and I try to find them. LOL Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet dragonfly pattern.

I really wish dragonflies were this color. They would not be so "offensive" if they were. Not that I am afraid of them, they can be a little intimidating. This is a dazzling granny square. I will be adding it to my ever growing granny square pattern. If I took the time to make every granny square I have saved, I could probably work for at least a year before I finished them all.

This could easily be an accent piece in a project or the main ingredient. I love the colors selected as they are vibrant and young. A perfect granny square for a Spring project like a new pillow to welcome in the fast approaching season.

This is the cutest square i have seen. It would be perfect on a baby blanket for a boy .
