This is a pattern for a basic flower granny square and can be made to either a 5” square or a 6” square. There are numerous variations on this flower square and I will document them at a later date.
With appropriate yarn and recommended hook ch 5 join with a sl st to form a loop.
Rnd 1:Ch 2 to count as first dc then work a further 11 dc into the loop, join with a sl st (12 sts)
Rnd 2: Next ch 2, to count as 1st dc and work 2 dc into spaces between each dc in previous rnd. Join with sl st (24 sts)
Rnd 3: ch 2 , to count as 1st dc and work 2 dc into same space, work 3 dc into every 2nd dc space. Join with sl st. (36 sts)
Note: Darn ends in as you go.
Rnd 4: Join contrasting colour and ch 2 to count as 1st dc work 2 dc into 1st space, *sk 3 sts, work another 3 dc into next space, sk 3 sts, work 3 dc into next space ch 2 and work another 3 dc into same space (forming a corner)*, **rep until rnd is complete.
