Happy Sunday all! It’s gorgeous weather here so I’m trying to make this post brief so I can take Jasper out to enjoy it whilst it lasts!
I plan on releasing a Granny Square CAL page soon so we can all easily see which squares are released and when the next square is due, but for now, this is part 5 of our CAL – a lovely Flower in a square. This square utilities the puff stitch which we learnt in a previous lesson, and it is also similar to our first square.
I hope you guys like this pretty little square, and as always,
CAL – Part 5
Granny square – Flower in a Square
All crochet patterns and terms I use are in UK, but if you want them in US then check out this handy stitch converter.
- 3.5mm hook – check out this great crochet kit which has all the hooks and little extra bits you’ll need for this CAL.
- DK yarn in 3 different colours. I used Robin DK in apple, Seagreen and sunflower.
Skills used/ Required:
- Half Treble Crochet stitch (htc)
- Crocheting in a circle
- Slip stitch (sl st)
- Double crochet (dc)
- Treble crochet (tc or trc)

The finished square should be 12cm , the same size as previous squares. When we crochet them all together I will give out tips for squares not all the same size so don’t worry too much about exact sizes =)
