Mum in Treble Afghan

DSCN3946I really like the way this afghan turned out.  I found the pattern for this square on Ravelry created by Julie Yeager.  The pattern for the block is $1.99 but well worth it.  The instructions are written well and the pictures amazingly helpful. 

To create the petals I did a stitch I have never done before but it was easy.  There are two size squares included in the instructions a 12″ square and a 9″ square. 

These can be done in one color or up to 5.  I chose to do my squares in 2 colors the flower and the border.  I was going to do a scrappy afghan but decided that with 12″ squares it was a little much so settled on 4 different colors, 2 shades of purple and 2 shades of aqua.

The measurements for my afghan were 36″ x 60″ which was 3 squares by 5 squares. I also crocheted a hdc border around the whole afghan when finished.  I used a little over 4 skeins of black and 1 skein of each color and used a size I hook.

I joined the squares using a slip stitch.  Here is a great video from Youtube that shows different ways to join squares.

Julie also has a free block of the month which can be found here.  You will have to create a sign on for Ravelry which is a great place to find lots of patterns and many of them are free.
