One of our volunteers at work asked me to make her little granddaughter a blanket.
Anna had seen the blanket I had made previously and decided she wanted one as well. She chose the colours and I made the Daisy flower blanket.
I create all the daisies first then add the colours using a basic block stitch
Row 1: into the chain space between each popcorn: 1sc 2ch, repeat to end and join.
Row 2: into 1st ch space of previous row ch1 (counts as 1st sc) 2sc in next ch sp 3sc,
(cnr)1hdc 2 dc 2ch 2dc 1hdc , in next ch sp 3sc, in next ch sp 3sc. 4 times to create 4 sides. Join
Row 3: 1sc 2 ch between each set of 3 in previous round. For the corners: 1sc 2ch 1sc.
Row 4: 3 dc into each ch sp from prev round, For the corners: 3dc 1ch 3dc
Repeat rows 3 and 4 till you have the size you want.
The plain squares are made with a circle center to match the size of the daisy.
Start: ch3 to form a ring.
Row 1: 12 sc into ring
Row 2: ch4 (counts as first US Tr) 1tr 1ch, 2tr 1ch into each sc from row 1. total 24 tr.
