Here in Saskatchewan, Canada, we are still waiting for the snow to melt and the flowers to start popping up. I designed Persistent Blossoms to represent my spring season here and I am so pleased with it!

Originally published in Crochet Now Issue 93 (a UK magazine and thus that written pattern uses UK terminology). https://craftworld.com/cms/crochet-now-93-on-sale/

Now that the rights have reverted back to me, I can publish using my normal format; that is: US terminology and two techniques (mosaic and interlocking).

Crochet the small square with me by following the video walk-thru or use the written pattern available for free on my website!
