Inspiration

I wanted a realistic flower square that had a lot of pop! I felt that a simple four petal tapestry crochet flower was the best way to accomplish those goals.

Yarn Details

This flower square was designed for the Bouquet of Flowers CAL and needed to be designed in a lightweight #3 yarn to coordinate with the other squares in the event.

Fortunately, I had some spare Rico Essentials Cotton DK in seriously beautiful colors left over from my Spring Gingham Placemats pattern.

Luckily, it was the perfect yarn for this project!

Pattern Notes:

Read all pattern notes, instructions, and other provided details carefully before starting the project to make sure you understand everything.  It could save you hours & a lot of headaches!

  • Make a swatch that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch provided under the Gauge Section. If your swatch matches the gauge, then you are all set to start the project. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your crochet hook – increase your hook size if your stitches are smaller & decrease your hook size if your stitches are larger.
  • Measurements given are after blocking.
  • Provided measurements are as exact as possible, but are given as approximates. This is because yarn variances, crochet tension, & individual technique might give variations in the result, which changes from person to person.
  • Main photo is of an 8-inch square, pattern has been upscaled to create a 10-inch square.
  • Tapestry crochet typically has a right-side (RS) and a wrong-side (WS).  The RS is worked from left to right and then you turn your work where you will then be working on the WS from left to right.  The → and ← at the start of each row in the instructions indicate what direction you are working in relation to each row on the chart.  These arrows indicate the directions for a RIGHT-HANDED crocheter.  If you are a LEFT-HANDED crocheter, the arrows are actually the  OPPOSITE direction from what you see in the pattern, thus if you see → it is actually ← for you and if you see ← it is actually → for you.
  • Cut the yarn when the color is used sparingly (ie. 1 or 1 stitches) and carry the yarn through for long stretches of color. 
  • The square is worked using only the single crochet (sc).  Thus, if the row reads A2, C4, B1 – this means to sc with color A in the next 2 sts, sc with color C in the next 4 sts, and then sc in the next st with color B.
  • Care Instructions: Hand wash & lay flat to dry or follow instructions on the package.

Bind off & Weave in ends

NOTE:  Because some of the stitches are only 1 sc there may be a few loose ends.  You will need to bind off & weave these ends in a way that corrects for any incomplete looking stitches (especially on the WS of the square), but is also secure enough not to come unraveled.
