Pretty pink puffy petals! I’ve come up with a large 3D Crochet Flower Square that would make a gorgeous stand-out piece in a granny square afghan and it was created specifically for the Moogly CAL! Thank you Tamara for the opportunity to be one of the designers this year! The flower portion is not as complicated as it may look. The entire pattern is made up of chains, SC, and DC stitches plus I have a detailed photo tutorial in addition to the written pattern. There are so many color combinations you could use! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Beautiful square. Nice to see your square as a part of the CAL.
Have a great day, Margaret
This website contains links to a virus which was installed on my Mac. It is a tape snake virus. I think it came from one of your pop up advertisers.
A stitch count for the end of each row would be helpful. Might you add that? Thanks! Square was fun to make!
I like the little flower and needed an idea to add to my granddaughter’s Minion mittens, thank you
Your square was really fun to make! Thank you so much for sharing and being part of the CAL! I love seeing others’ crochet talent and creativity <3
Would it be possible to add this square to Raverly so those of us who like to thoroughly document their CAL adventures can add it to their MooglyCAL2016 Afghan project? Thanks so much!!! Also, your owl hat was my VERY first crochet project and got me hooked 😉
Thanks for French translation and tuto.

Sarah, I was looking around sites and saw your Moogly CAL Flower square, it’s gorgeous! Looked around your site and found it interesting. I think I’ll join my first CAL. I was wondering if you’re doing the whole quilt or just the one square? I was hoping to use the colors you chose, if that’s okay with you, with maybe a lavender to bring them all together, or a dark green. What do you think? Thank you for your time and attention. Sincerely, Jen

Sorry to ask but does the chaining at. The beginning of the rounds (like round 2 for example) count as a stitch?

I have just started crocheting again after many many years. I just stumbled on this CAL project and am trying to catch up. I haven’t even finished this square, but I have to tell you, I love this little flower. I made mine with a dark brown middle with yellow petals. I will probably use a beige for the main part of the square. So cute. Thank you!
