Granny Square Apron

By: Bella for Create Bella Create

Let your little girl help you in the kitchen by making her this adorable granny square apron! Using this crochet apron pattern from Bella Feagins, you can crochet squares and turn them into a delicate, flower embellished apron for an aspiring chef.

Granny Square Apron


  • 2 balls of yarn, 1 main color and one accent color
  • 5.5 mm hook
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors

Stitches Used: All stitches in US Crochet

  • Half Double Crochet (hdc)
  • Double Crochet (dc)
  • Triple Crochet (tr)
  • Single Crochet (sc)
  • Slip Stitch
  • picot
  • chain (ch)


This pattern is really easy and simple to work up and the main part of it just takes some basic crochet knowledge.
You will make a basic granny square. {I am not providing the how to on this because there are so many awesome how to's out there and I don't want to accidentally word mine just like there's and be coping.}

You will keep going around making your granny square until you have 10 rounds or it is 12 inches by 12 inches across. {If making it for a bigger or smaller size you will make the square as big or small as you need for the person you are making it for. :)

Join with your flower color in the corner of one of the groups of 3 dc in the first round.
See Photo:

After joining in that corner do a sc around that corner and then ch 3.
Go to the next corner of a group of 3 dc in the first round and sc around that corner and then ch 3.
You will keep doing this around until you reach the first corner that you started in and there you will do a slip stitch into that first ch 3 group. You will have 8 groups of ch 3 spaces. See photo:

Granny Square Apron

In that ch 3 space you will do: sc, hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sc
Go to the next ch 3 space and do the same sc, hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sc pattern
Keep doing that pattern until you have made all 8 petals and reach the beginning again. See Photo to see what the first 8 finished petals will look like:

Push the top flower petals down so that you can see the underneath/behind of them. You will do a sc around the post of the first sc that you did to start that first round of flowers. See photo:

Ch 4 and then sc around the next sc post from the previous round of the flower.
Keep this up doing a sc around each sc post with a ch 4 in between. You will have 8 groups of ch 4. When you get to the beginning slip stitch into the first ch 4 group. In that ch 4 space you will do: sc, hdc, dc, dc, tr, dc, dc, hdc, sc.
Keep doing the sc, hdc, dc, dc, tr, dc, dc, hdc, sc in each ch 4 space. When you get back to the beginning and have completed all 8 petals you will end with a slip stitch around that very first sc post.

This is for the extra small to small girls size. Again if you are making this for a smaller size or bigger size you can adjust the length of your strap accordingly.

Ch 142
hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook and hdc in each ch till the end.
Ch 2 {counts as 1st hdc} turn and hdc across.
Ch 2 {counts as 1st hdc} turn and hdc across.
Ch 1 {does not count} sc for 45
*picot, sc for 5 * repeat from * to * 10 more times
sc for 40 more
finish off your ends and weave in.

Line up your strap and apron piece how you want it to look. See photo:

Put your pieces right side together. See photo:

Join the same yarn that you used for your strap into the right corner {only in the part of the stitch that is away from you ~ see photo below for an example} ch of the apron and into the strap. Ch 1

Granny Square Apron

You will sc across only using the half of the stitch of the apron that is away from you {as shown in the photo} and the stitch of the strap that is closest to you. The result will be a line of sc across to make a nice clean edge line. See photo below to see what the finished product should look like.
