This pattern is being featured as the Week #10 square in the Block-A-Week-2019 Crochet-Along, being hosted by Julie Yeager, JulieAnny. Many thanks to Julie for inviting me to participate.

During this CAL, you may obtain this pattern as a FREE Ravelry download by using the coupon code rosebud. This offer is good until March 10, 2020.

In order to thank Julie for this CAL and to show gratitude for this free pattern, please make a Ravelry project page and link it to this pattern! We appreciate it so much!

With this pattern, you will make a colorful square for throws, bags, blankets, afghans, pillows, etc.

If you like rainbows, this square radiates out from the flower center with 7 rounds. The 7 colors of the rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, and violet, but you can let your creativity “blossom” with any colors you choose. The optional final round looks nice in a contrasting color.

This written pattern contains two photo tutorials: 1) how to do the needle join, aka the invisible join, and 2) how to do the pointy picot.

Changing colors on every round works best if you employ the needle join. All your ends will be woven in as you go! Keep your yarn needle and scissors beside you as you work.

Other features of this pattern include: 1) turning the piece over after every round -- on the outer rounds -- to prevent the block from “swirling” and 2) joining in the corners to provide a seamless appearance.
