Pinwheel Flower Square
by The Purple Poncho
Above is her square, in her 6 colors. Below is my CAL square, in my 6 colors!
My Notes: Carolyn has created a real showstopper of a square for us in the Pinwheel Flower Square! Color, texture, interesting stitches, this block has them all. Be sure to read through the special stitches, and keep that page handy as you work. There are lots of notes to help you as you go!
Helpful Links and Tutorials: Working into the 3rd loop, Post Stitches, Standing Post Stitches, Popcorn Stitches, Standing Single Crochet, Standing Half Double Crochet, Standing Double Crochet, BLO - Back Loop Only, Chainless Starting Double Crochet, and Seamless Finishing.
Sizing: My square came out a bit small, so I added one more round of hdc, working (hdc, ch 2, hdc) in each corner ch sp. But everyone's gauge is different so be sure to measure as you go! 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 (see pics for more info on placement):
Cornflower = Cornsilk
Orange = Tangerine
Aubergine = Pewter
Lettuce = Lettuce
Wisteria = Iced Aqua
Blushing Peach = White
This square required a little bit of blocking. I used the wet blocking method, or you could use light steam.

Wow! This square is absolutely gorgeous!! I did not see this coming when she shared the Pinwheel Flower a couple of week's ago. Your link for block 23 actually leads to the flower applique, and not the block.
Sorry about that, I was in a meeting all morning and updated it right after you commented, I think! ♥
