Learn to Crochet the Blossom Stitch – free pattern
Learn to crochet the blossom stitch with my free square pattern below.
The blossom stitch has a two row repeat that creates a gorgeously lacy textured project that is not rigid but rather elegant when worked up. This makes it great for hats, scarves and gloves. I am planning an item for summer with this stitch too, so keep an eye out for that!
The Blossom Square is the 14th square to be released in the 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.
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,
- tops and jackets,
- book / i-pad covers
The list really can go on and on. It’s as long as your imagination allows.
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.

Of course, I would LOVE it if you tagged me in your square phots on FaceBook or Instagram. Another way for you to stay in touch with me is to join my newsletter.
The 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.
