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.

Beautiful!

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!

Happy crocheting!
