A decorative, floral square, with a chunky, rustic lacey look about it. This square was designed to add a little weight to a lacey design. Here, the DK yarn, plus the use of front post stitches over double crochets gives this square its “chunky” feel thus making repeats of the square suitable for a deliciously warm and squishy Winter blanket! The design is partial to any colourway you can imagine up, but an Ombre effect works beautifully here.
This square is easy to downsize or upsize depending on your preferred hook.

The final round, an optional row of SC’s, makes it easy to add extra rounds as well.

Many, MANY thanks to Cindy van der Schee aka Echtgaaf, and Judy aka MuffetsMom for testing this pattern
