Hi all! Happy Mothers day to everyone 😊 I hope you all have lovely days, whatever you are choosing to do. I thought we would make a nice flower for this weeks square as a tribute to mother’s everywhere =)
I wanted to make this square special and so I have chosen a 3D flower which we make first, and then we make the square around it (a bit like our St Patricks square!). We will end up with a lovely flower framed in a square.
Let me know in the comments what you are up to today, and what you love about you parents. I love my parents for putting up with me and always supporting me through all my madness!
Annnyyway, here’s the pattern!
CAL – Part 6
Granny Square – Mothers Flower
- 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 4 different colours. I used Robin DK in Apple, Seagreen, Sunflower and Jaffa.
Skills used/ Required:
- Crocheting in a circle
- slip stitch (sl st)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Treble Crochet (tc)
- Half Treble Crochet (htc)
- Double Treble Crochet (dtc)
- Triple Treble Crochet (ttc)
- Changing colours
Row 0: dc 8 into magic ring. Finish with sl st into first dc. (8 stitches total)
Row 1: ch 5 (this counts as first tc and 2ch), *tc into next stitch, ch 2*. Repeat from * 6 more times. Finish with sl st I to ch3 of 5ch. Fasten off (8 stitches total)
Row 2: join new colour in any 2ch space with sl st. *ch 3, sl st into next ch 2 space*. Repeat from * 6 more times. Finish off with ch 3 and sl st into first sl st from this round.
Row 3: *(dc, htc, 2tc, htc, dc) in ch 3 space, sl st over sl st from previous row *. Repeat from * 7 more times.
Row 4: working from the back of the flower, * ch 4 and then sl st into, not over, the sl st’s from the previous rows *. You should put your hook through 4 loops, but if you can only get through 2 that’s okay. You should now have a chain behind your first petal. Repeat from * 7 more times. You should end up with a set of chains ready for petalling behind your first petals.
Row 5: *(dc, htc, tc, 2dtc, tc, htc, dc) in ch 4 space, sl st over sl st from previous row *. Repeat from * 7 more times.
Row 6: working from the back of the flower, * ch 5 and then sl st into, not over, the sl st from the previous row *.
Row 7: *(dc, htc, tc, 3dtc, tc, htc, dc) in ch 5 space, sl st over sl st from previous row *. Repeat from * 7 more times. Fasten off.
You should now have a finished flower, yay! We will now work on making it into a square.
Row 8: Working from the back, join new colour in any sl st ‘post’ (see images). *ch 10, sl st into next sl st post*. Repeat from * 7 more times.
Row 9: *(sl st, dc, htc, tc, dtc, ttc, ch2, ttc, dtc, tc, htc, dc, sl st) in ch10 space, ch3, 8dc in next ch 10 space, ch 3*. Repeat from * 3 more times. Finish off with sl st into sl st from beginning of row. Fasten off.
Row 10: Join with new colour in ch3 space from previous row. Ch 7 (counts as dtc a 3ch) * (sl st into 4th dc from previous row, ch 3, sl st), ch 3, dtc in ch 3 space from last row, ch 5, (sl st into ch 2 space from previous row, ch 3, sl st), ch 5, dtc, ch 3*. Repeat from * twice more. (Sl st into 4th dc, ch3, sl st) ch3, dtc in ch 3 space from last row, ch 5, (sl st into ch 2 space, ch 3, sl st), ch 5. Finish with sl st into ch 4 of ch 7 from beginning of row. Fasten off.
