How the Blooming Flower Crochet Square came to be.
If you’ve been around awhile you may remember the CAL we did last winter. If you’re new around here, we did the Winter Squares CAL last winter. It was so much fun, we decided to do a spring version too!
I love spring mostly because I know summer is right around the corner. But seriously though; the blooming flowers, the trees becoming full, and the fresh air. What’s not to love about spring!
Gerbera Daisies are my favorite flower. I was super excited to choose that flower for my square. As I got started on it, I quickly realized trying to make a tapestry square of a Gerbera daisy wasn’t going to be easy. They have so many petals and it just wasn’t working. That’s when the idea for the blooming flower came to mind. I went with and I couldn’t be more happy how my flower turned out. I hope you love it as much as I do.
If you would like to join in the CAL, join the CAL group over on Facebook. This is where you can ask any questions you may have on the patterns and share your blanket progress. You can also make along with us on Instagram using the hashtags #inbloomblanketcal #springbloomsblanketcal

Pattern & Attaching Flower

Rows 2-33: Sc 28, Ch 1, turn
Row 34: Sc 28, Ch 2, do not fasten off.
Your square should measure approx 6” x 6”. Do more/less rows if needed.
You will Sc around the outer edge until square measures 8” x 8”.
I did approx. 6 rows of edging.
Rnd 1: Sc evenly down the side, make sure to Ch 2 at each corner, Sc across the bottom, up the other side, across the top, Sl st to 1st Sc from previous rnd, Ch 1
Rnds 2-6: In the Ch 2 sp *(Sc, Ch 2, Sc) Sc around, making sure to Rep from * in each corner and Sl st to 1st Sc from previous rnd, Ch 1. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Block square if needed before attaching flower.
To attach flower:
Center flower on the square. With Color A and tapestry needle stitch around the outer edge of the center circle where the petals meet. Weave in ends.
With Color B:
Make sure your outer petals are layed out evenly. With your tapestry needle coming through the back of the square, you’ll *stitch through the tip of the outer petal, through the side of the outer petal (next to the tip you just attached). Rep from * around until you have attached all of the outer petals. Weave in ends. (I did not attach the inner petals) You’re done!
You’re done! I can’t wait to see what colors you make your flower in.
