Inspiration for this pattern is the flowers indigenous to South Africa. Living in such a beautiful country, we are forever surrounded by natural beauty. This blanket incorporates flower squares designed by me to pay tribute to the beauty of my country.

True to what I love, this pattern is bold and bright with a multitude of colors used, no color chart is included within this pattern as the color choice for your blanket is completely your choice.

    4 Small Flower squares

    • Humble African Daisy Twist
    • Cosmos
    • Cape Daisy
    • Simply African Daisy

    Yarn used in the pattern example: 

    • 100% Cotton Yarn 
    • 130yds/119m per 1.75oz/50g skein/ball

    The above-mentioned yarn is not a requirement for the pattern, you can use any yarn of your choice, just note that using more lightweight yarn and smaller hook, the squares and blanket size will be overall smaller, and using a heavier yarn and larger hook, the squares will be larger and the overall blanket size will be larger. 

    Suggestions for yarn substitutions:

    This pattern is a stash buster so pick a yarn that you enjoy working with. 

    I prefer a lightweight yarn, as this makes the blanket not too heavy, but the final choice is simply your preference.

    Example bkanket final size is based on the pattern being worked in 3.5 mm / US 4 /E-4 hook.

    Crochet Hook required for pattern

    The example pattern uses a: 3.5 mm / US 4 /E-4 fo the example yarn used.
    But feel free to use the hook that suits your preferred yarn.

    I would suggest sticking to the same hook and yarn across all Blocks and when joining, as this will ensure that all your Blocks match up.

    Techniques used: 

    All crochet squares are worked in the round, ensure that your final row count per side is correct or you will struggle to join your BLOck on a late stage.
    Gauge is not important, but it's best to stick to the same yarn weight and crochet hook thru-out making your squares or your squares would not match up.
