Block #1: Striped Flower Garden
by Jessie At Home
Above is the original made in 5 colors! Below, you can see my version, made with my 4 colors!
My Notes: This pattern starts off with a fantastic 3D floral center (but not TOO 3D!) surrounded by modern stripes – a bit of interest, and a bit of relaxation! I really enjoyed planning out my color changes for this one!
Sizing: This one was coming out a bit big for me, so I omitted the last two rounds and then it came out to 12″. But everyone’s gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go, and check your gauge. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
What I Did: I used a Furls US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows – Rnd 1 and 2: White; Rnd 3-6: Bluebell; Rnd 7: True Blue; Rnd 8: Navy; Rnd 9: White; Rnd 10: Bluebell; Rnd 11: White; Rnd 12: True Blue; Rnd 13: White; Rnd 14: Navy; Rnd 15: White; Rnd 16 and 17: Omitted for size.
