A worsted / aran crocheted rendition of a water lily pad floating in a pool of cool blue water. Easy and fast to make, it makes a bright and cheerful addition to any afghan, pillow, or anywhere you want a touch of whimsy. Adorn it with a water lily, or even a little amigurumi frog!

This pattern is for the square only. A link to the pattern for the flower seen in the picture is below.

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

SIZE: 6” (15.25 cm)

GAUGE: Using the specified yarn and hook size, and crocheting somewhat tightly, results in a 6” (15.24 cm) square. Lily pad is 5” (12.7 cm) across. If you use a heavier worsted yarn than the Simply Soft yarn recommended for the water and border, you may need to go down a hook size.
