One nice thing about living in Japan is hanami, or cherry-blossom viewing. Whether it’s walking along the riverside in Inazawa, where fat grey carp swim under falling drifts of petals, or partying late into the night under the trees at Tsurumai park.
This square requires 50-80m of yarn in a background colour, brown for the ‘branches’, green leaves and white or pink for the blossoms, as well as a very small amount of deep yellow or dark pink for the centres of the blossoms. You’ll also need a tapestry needle to sew on the leaves and flowers.

Suitable for intermediate crocheters.

Squares are worked with worsted-weight yarn and a size H hook. Larger or smaller squares can be worked by changing yarn/hook size or by working more/fewer rounds.

Written pattern only, in US crochet terms - no charts available. Please contact the author if you have any questions!
