La Petite Fleur Square

I dedicate this square to my little girl, who is indeed my little flower with her fascinating imagination. It is not the mere fact that she is so pretty in my eyes but she simply loves nature and all its hidden beauty  – especially flowers.

I used Vinnis Nikkim 100% Cotton DK in Ballet Pink (colour 1), Pink (Colour 2), Avocado (Colour 3), White (Colour 4) and Kingfisher (Colour 5) and a 3 mm hook for this pattern. The size of the square is approximately 13 x 13 cm.

Abbreviations and stitch explanation (American Crochet terminology): 

beg – begin, ch – chain, dc – double crochet, rnd – round, sc – single crochet, sp – space, ss – slip stitch, st – stitch

Cluster (cl):

  1. Yarn over hook.
  2. Insert hook in next ch or sp and draw up a loop.
  3. Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Two loops remain on the hook.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3, yarn over hook and draw through remaining loops on hook.

Pattern:

With colour 1, work 4 ch, ss into the 1st ch to form a ring.

Rnd 1: 1 ch, 8 sc in ring, ss in beg sc.
