Crochet * Granny Square “Somalia”


We run a fundraising for Somalia during August – similar to the one for Japan initiated by Großmütterchen’s Blogspot. I modified the famous “African Flower” granny from hexagon to square format. You are invited cordially to join!

For starters – please use cotton or cotton-mixture matching hook #3 mm. The granny squares should measure appr. 10-11 cm. We will give you more information on how to proceed shortly.



  1. This is such a cute pattern. Is there a web page that has the instructions written down? I find it hard to follow the video and would like to read instructions. Thanks.

      I also would love the written instructions to the Granny Square “Somalia” African Flower. It is really different.

      Thank you so much

  2. Hello i love your granny square! it is the perfect design because i was looking for a pattern to crochet squares for the knit-a-square project to be sent to african orphanages. Unfortunately after finishing one square the material refuses to lay flat and seems to be bulging/rippling a lot. Do you know what i did wrong? And how can i modify the pattern so that it is a flat square instead of a hexagon
