The Striped Flower Garden square features a dimensional flower in the center, and then square rounds of different colors and sizes to the edge. When made in worsted weight yarn such as Red Heart With Love, the square is 12″. Due to the texture, the Striped Flower Garden square would also look lovely in one solid color. You could even make a blanket with multiple squares each made of a different color. Get creative and have fun!

17 Comments on Striped Flower Garden – a fun and easy 12″ afghan square

    • If you want a printable version you can buy the PDF from Etsy or Ravelry for $2.00. If you view it free on my site, I get paid by my advertisers. If you don’t want to do that you can buy the ad-free PDF. That way I get paid for my work either way.

  1. There is no direction to slip stitch into the chain 2 space at either the end of round 8 nor the start of round 9 – I was following the directions exactly as written, and it just didn’t look right. I realized why not, and ripped out the round and did it over with the slipping to space. But, you may want to fix it for the less experienced crocheters 🙂

  2. When I sl st at the end of round 6 do I pull the yarn all the way through and completely start new on round 7 or do my two yarns (color B and color C) stay connected? If they are connected, won’t there be a large gap between my sl st with color B and joining color C in at the middle of the 3 dc?

  3. I completed Row 7 and had 40 its as stated. However, when Row 8 is completed I have many more than 48 sts. Even reading and counting the its for Row 8, I get more than 48. Please help me if you can. Thank you.

  4. Is there a video tutorial to this? I am having a hard time conceptualizing it. I am on round 7, but it does not look right. Thank you.

    • Sorry, no. If you are on Facebook you can join the group linked at the bottom of the post and then share some pictures so we can help you figure out what went wrong.

  5. Why say it’s a free pattern and have obstacles in it that makes it harder to see the pattern. Why not just be truthful and say pay.

    • The pattern is right here in this post for free. If the ads (that pay me, which allows me to post the pattern for free) bother you, you can click on the link at the top of the post to Ravely, or the one at the bottom for the ad-free printable PDF. Then you can pay $2 for an ad-free PDF instead of letting my advertisers pay me. I deserve to be paid for my work, just like anyone else, I’ve just found a way to let someone else pay me so you can get the pattern for free. Isn’t that nice!
