Flower Square Tutorial III


As you might have read already I had tons of fun making this Vintage Flower Blanket. I thought some of you would like to have a tutorial. Her it goes.


For starters make a magic circle (or chain 5) and in that circle 12 single crochets.
Round 1: Chain 3 in any sc. Into the same stitch 3 triple crochets, *than pull up the loop, remove hook, put hook in the third ch (from your first ch 3) and pull loop through. Now you have the first poofy flower pettal. chain 2, then work 4 triple crochets into the next stitch. Repeat from * until you have 12 petals. Join with a slip stitch. (See picture beneath where to put your hook)


Round 2: Change color, put hook in one of the spaces between 2 petals. Ch 2, 2 half double crochets into the same space, *3 double crochets in the next space, ch 2, 3 dc in same space. 3 hdc into next 2 spaces, repeat from * until your square is finished. Join with ss. Then ss into the next stitch, ss into the next space (see Pictures beneath), ch 2, 2 dc into the same space. Now finish your granny square int the usual way.



Well, that's it for now. I hope it's clear. For questions just email me or leave a comment below.
