Spring Bloom

Used Stitches:

UK English (US)

ch = chain (chain)

ss= slip stitch (slip stitch)

tr = treble (US double crochet)

sp = space (space)

st = stitch. (stitch)

htr = half treble (US half double crochet)

sk = skip stitch ( skip stitch )

2trcl = 2 treble cluster. (US 2 double crochet cluster) (use this to start Round 2)

3trcl = 3 treble cluster. ( US 3 double crochet cluster)

Pattern notes: My granny square motif is made on a 4mm hook. Round 2 uses trcl = treble cluster stitches, this is where several stitches are grouped together (worked in the same space or stitch) by not completing the final part of the stitch, leaving the loops on the hook, before pulling the hook through all the loops of the incomplete stitches at the end, and forming the cluster stitch. It’s much the same as a decrease is done. More patterns available here on our blog page and in our Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative

Use the photos below to guide you.

Foundation Round using any yarn, I have used Stylecraft classique cotton in shades 3665, Soft Lime, 3663, Sunflower 3662, & Sage 3964, from my stash and a 4mm hook .Make a magic loop or chain 5, ss to join into a ring. We make ours with a magic loop.

Round 1 Into the magic loop or ring ch3 (counts as tr), 15 tr into ring ss to join into beg ch-3, fasten off. Use the photos below to guide you.

Round 2 Working out of alternate spaces between treble stitches, attach a new colour in the space between any treble stitch, ch3 (counts as tr), 2trcl, ch1, 3trcl, in first tr sp, sk next sp (you will have 2 tr between each petal), *(3trcl, ch1, 3trcl) sk next sp* repeat from * to * around, ss to join into the top of 2trcl, fasten off. (8 petal groups)

Round 3 For this round you create a long dc “spike” stitch this is made by working a dc into the sp of the row below and creates your petals. Working in the skipped treble sp of Round 2, attach a new colour yarn by pulling a loop through any tr sp, ch1 (counts as dc), ch4, *dc “spike” in next tr sp , ch4,* repeat from * to * around, ss to join into beg ch-1, fasten off.

Rounds 1, 2 & 3

Round 4 Working out of the ch-4 spaces, and using the same shade as Round 3, ss into the first ch-4sp, ch3 (counts as tr), 2tr, ch2, 3tr, in same ch-4sp, 6htr in next ch-4sp, *(3tr, ch2, 3tr,) in next ch-4sp for the corner, 6htr in next ch-4sp, * repeat from * to * around, ss to join into beg ch-3, fasten off.

Round 6

Round 7 I worked a round of dc, working a dc in every chain stitch and the top of every treble, with (2dc, ch2, 2dc,) in every corner. I then blocked and joined my squares with a flat braid join, there’s a fab tutorial for this joining method over at The Patchwork Heart Blog https://www.thepatchworkheart.co.uk/2016/08/continuous-flat-braid-join-tutorial-in.html
