Crochet Puff Flower Circle in a Square Motif - free pattern and video tutorial!


Learn how to crochet this beautiful crochet puff circle in a square motif and join as you go with a very pretty lacy edge. This motif would look stunning in a cotton yarn and would make for a gorgeous shawl - blocking your project will really make the delicate lacy join stand out.

The puff stitch is one of my favourites and has such great texture!

Used with soft acrylic yarn, it makes for the most squishy blanket. A versatile motif which I hope you will enjoy!
