There are many variations on this motif as there are the traditional granny square motif, here’s how we make ours ~
Treble Cluster Stitch (trcl) You will need to be familiar with this stitch for the pattern. (In our flower festival bag pattern this has detailed instructions for this stitch ) The “petals” of the flower motif on Round 2 are made using a treble cluster stitch, this is where a group of trebles (Us dc) are joined together for either a decrease or as in this pattern to make an attractive stitch with added texture.It’s where you don’t complete each stitch so in the 5trcl stitch, you would make 5 incomplete trebles and then pull the yarn through all 5 stitches (note you will have 6 loops on your hook for a 5trcl but only 5 loops for the 4trcl that’s used at the beginning of your round) .Use the photos below as a guide. Work all instructions in brackets in the same space or stitch throughout.
