Yoga Flower Square - Friends Around the World CAL 3 - 2018/19, Week 26

This motif was created as part of the Friends Around the World CAL 3 (Week 26). It is inspired by my 73-year-old mom who always keeps beautiful flowers in her tiny garden in the suburb of Tokyo, Japan and who picked up yoga in her 60s. 

There are 2 versions to the pattern - one with leaves and one without.  One with leaves is a little more advanced but I hope you like how they both look!

The pattern is slightly challenging but Tania has helped with a great video tutorial you can find here.

The motif can be made with any weight yarn and corresponding size hook of your choice.  My samples are made with my favorite yarn, Scheepjes Stone Washed, with a 4.0 mm hook.  It is a little skinnier than DK weight yarn, so my samples measure 8.5 inches across.  I used the following colors for my sample:

Moon Stone (801)
Amazonite (813)
Blue Apatite (805)
New Jade (812)

Some of the popular options for this pattern are:

Worsted yarn & 5.5 mm hook - 12 inches
DK yarn & 4.5 mm hook - 9 inches

The pattern is written in US crochet terms.
