Sunset Runner Granny Square

This is the Sunset Runner Granny Square. This one is a lot of fun and I think it would make a perfect square for a children’s blanket. The flower center has a cheerful feeling, and it lends itself to easy color variations.

Like the rest of my patterns, this pattern makes each new row in the middle of the row rather than at the corner.

You can use this pattern from this page or download your own copy for .99 cents from my Etsy shop.
