Emmalynn 12″, Bobbly Flower 6″ and Spiro Star 12″ Squares.
Here they are the blocks for March’s Block-A-Month Crochet-A-Long are they beautiful or what? One of the things I have found out is that I do have a little bit of artistic license with the block-a-month patterns, I am truly appreciative of that.
For instance the Emmalynn 12″ block, I saw a flower and in the center of the flower the spokes reminded me of filaments holding the stamens coming out of the center towards the petals.
It’s difficult if not a little tricky to try to make a 3D object out of something flat, but this is what I saw when I looked at the pattern for Emmalynn so I had to try to duplicate what I saw in my minds eye with color. The only changes I made to this pattern was when I crocheted around the flower I crocheted into the back posts with the greens to get the flower petals to pop up a bit. I also crocheted into back post of row #8 with the dark plum, all the back post stitches were made with original stitch from the pattern.
Bobbly Flower 6″, I love this little square! I have this theme going where all the 6″ squares are going to be chocolate-brown, I’ll work them in with the rose-colored 12″ squares to make a lapghan ( a lapghan is a bit smaller than a afghan). But, to work this square in all chocolate would do it a great injustice I felt, so I added a dab of heather. Doesn’t it look like a chocolate cookie with a dab of cream cheese frosting on it yummy! Oh here goes my sweet tooth!
Last but not least is the Spiro Star 12″, I followed the instructions on this square I didn’t need to change anything. Except for the hook size, which I used to crochet all three squares I used a G/4.00mm hook.
Until next month,
