Flower Square Tutorial VI


A lot of you asked me for the tutorial on the Daisy Travel Blanket Square (Flower Square VI), so here it is! Have fun with it!!

I always use US terms. 
Stitches:
Slip Stitch (ss)
Chain (ch)
Double Crochet (dc)
Hal Double Crochet (hdc)
Triple Crochet (trc)
Triple Crochet Cluster (trcc): Yarn around hook twice, into a dc from previous round, pull trough, yarn over, pull trough 2 loops, yarn over, pull trough 2 loops, there will be 2 loops on hook, yarn over twice, hook in same stich, pull through, yarn over, pull trough 2 loops, yarn over pull through 2 loops, there are 3 loops on the hook now. Yarn over twice, in same stitch, pull through, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over, pull trough 2 loops. There are now 4 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all loops. 

I've used a 3,5 hook and 100 % mercerized cotton.


Start with a magic circle or chain 3 and join with a ss. 



Round 1: Ch2, 11 dc into the cicle. Join with a ss. There are 12 stitches now (always double check!!). On the right bottom pic (where the needle is) I show you that I also use the ss in the next round. I always just go through that loop, then you won't see any difference with the other stitches.




Round 2: Change color. Ch 3, 2 trcc into the same stitch, *ch 2, 3 trcc into the next stitch*, repeat * to * 10 times. Ch 2, join with ss. You will have a total of 12 petals. (As you can see on the bottom left pic, when you use the ss from the previous round, you can pull the end of your yellow thread to make it nice and tight again).


Round 3: Change color. Ch 2, 2 hdc in the space between 2 petals, 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc into the next space. This is you corner. *3 hdc into the next 2 spaces, 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc into the next space.* Repeat *to* 2 times. 3 hdc into the next space, ch1 and join with ss.


If you want to make the square bigger, like I did, ss into the next stitch, ss in the space between the 3 hdc and 3 dc from the previous round. 


Round 4: Ch 2, 2 dc into the space, 3 dc into every next space. In the corners; 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc into the same space. Join with a ss. That's your square.




I also made some pictures on how to finish of your loose ends. This might be helpful. I always put the needle where I want it to go, before I put the thread into the needle.




Well, I hope you all enjoy this!!

Have a loving day!

    1. Not yet. But since I get this question often, I might do it in the future. I just don't know when yet. I used simple single crochets to join these, but normally I would use the join as you go method.

  16. Wat een leuke deken! Ik heb zojuist het eerste vierkant gehaakt en heb twee vraagjes/opmerkingen. Je haakt in ronde 3 aan het eind nog een losse voor je 'm vastmaakt met een slipstitch. Is dat echt nodig want dit staat niet in je patroontekening. En bij de ronde 4 ben je in de tekst vergeten te melden dat er in de hoeken 3 lossen moeten tussen de clusters van 3 stokjes. Komt wel goed als je de tekening erbij 'pakt' maar ik vermoed dat niet iedereen die bekijkt/snapt. Verder werd ik erg blij van je foto's over het afwerken aan de achterkant. Dat zie je niet vaak! Bedankt voor het delen van dit patroon. Ik kom graag op je weblog!

    1. Bedankt voor je opmerkingen. Die losse mag je natuurlijk weglaten als je dat wilt. Ik vind het mooier met. Maar ik pas meteen die 3 losse in de hoeken aan, die was ik vergeten.

  17. Thanks everyone! I love to do this. I get lots of questions on the yarn. In the sidebar you can click on the label YARN and there you can find info on the yarn I usually use. I don't keep track of the amount of yarn I use, sorry. Maybe I can try it in the future...

  18. Question?? I think there should be 12 DC in the magic circle. Am I right or am doing something wrong. I have tried it SEVERAL times and the only way I get 12 petals is by doing 12 DC for total of 13 (Ch 2 plus 12 DC).

    ReplyDelete
  19. I do Ch 2 11 dc. If you look at the first set of 4 pictures you can see I also use the slipstitch. That makes a total of 12 stitches. Good luck!

    1. Ok I see it now. I have made 3 squares so far using 12 Dc and it still looks good. Thanks for answering.

    1. It might be your hook size. Maybe you need to try a few sizes bigger?

  27. Hello. Thanks you so much for sharing this pattern. It is absolutely beautiful! My question is: what does *trough* stand fir?

    1. Angie, I am sure that is an accidental typo which is suppose to be "through" instead of "trough." That is what makes sense, anyway. This blanket is beautiful! I may make it sometime in the future, but I wish I had the pattern for the border...perhaps I can figure it out or makeup my own. :)

    2. I'm sorry! I will do a tutorial, but my list is very loooonnnggg at the moment. Maybe for the time being you can find a pretty edge on pinterest or use the one in my sidebar...

  28. Hi everyone. I am new here and already I'm in love with the vibrant colors let alone the patterns. I am looking at all the options upper right and don't see one for print. Am I not allowed to print the pattern off? Thanks for any help in this regard.

    1. You are allowed, but I have no idea how that works. Sorry! good luck!
