________________

This square is meant to, and hopefully does, look like a fountain in a garden. I have had some ideas kicking around in my head for a while now, but this one was inspired by a square I saw while browsing where someone did a border of flowers out of V stitches and clusters. I thought it was wonderful and will post a link when I find it again.

But of course, flowers need a place to be and a border needs to be around something, so there is the fountain. I have seen the technique I used for the center in a few patterns and thought it was great, and perfect for this.

I used an H hook and Caron Simply Soft yarn, which is a light worsted weight, but I apparently crochet rather loosely because with this combination I usually come out on gauge for patterns written for worsted weight and an I hook. So take from that what you will, and please give it a try!
