Learn to Crochet the Blossom Stitch – free pattern
Bouquet of Flowers CAL. I designed it specifically for the event and love how it turned out. It might be much plainer than some of the squares designed but it fits into the blanket well and is a great project for beginners as well as more experienced crocheters.I have the pattern for the Blossom Stitch free here – just keep scrolling. There are also links to both the right and left handed video tutorials for the Blossom Square.There is also the option to purchase the whole bundle for this CAL, including the joining and border instructions. This will always be available, but the price will increase after the CAL. If you would like to check it out click the button below:
Sizing: Once blocked your Blossom Stitch Square should be 10’’ AbbreviationsThe general newsletter only goes out once (maybe twice on special occasions) a week. The Events and Cals newsletter goes out to let you know about the patterns included in the events that I am a part of or hosting as they become available. For the most part that can mean daily free or heavily discounted pdf pattern notifications etc direct to your inbox.
What can you make with a square?Not everyone would like to make an afghan with squares, but what else can you do with them? The list is actually quite long! You can make so many things with a square including:
- throw pillows,
- washcloths / dishcloths,
- table runners,
