"Proof that small squares can look delicious. Small squares can be used for KAS blankets too, so long as the outside dimensions of the blanket equal 40" by 56", which is 7 eight inch squares by 5 eight inch squares. "
round 1: chain 6 in the first chain, close with slipstitch (=6 stitches)
round 2: chain 1, 2 dc in every stitch, close with a slipstitch (12 stitches)
round 3: chain 1, *2 dc in one dc of former round, 1 dc in next stitch* , repeat up till end of round, end with a slipstitch in the first stitch (18 stitches)
round 4: Start a new colour. Chain 3 and 2 half treble in one stitch of the former round, skip one stitch, 3 half treble in the next stitch, skip one stitch and so on up till you have 9 groups of 3 half treble. End with a slipstitch on top of the chain 3.
Round 5: Start a new colour. One dc in every stitch around, but between the groups of the 3 half treble you make a dc in the skipped stitch of round 3. That is the long dc that you see on the picture.
Round 6: Start a new colour.
*start with one dc in the long dc of the former round.
in the next dc of the former round 1: 1 double treble
in the next dc 3 times double treble
in the next dc 1 double treble*
repeat up till you have 9 petals
End with a sliptstich in the first dc of this round.
With a new colour you make a circle in surface crochet (between round 3 and 4).

Hi Melinda, An honour for me that you like to have the pattern. Thank you so much. I have the pattern from a Dutch crochet "star". She makes such lovely crochet work. I will give it a try to translate it for you. Also she has a tutorial in Dutch, luckily with very clear pictures. I will send the link to you. Give me a couple of days and I will be back to you. :)
I'm a crocheter and have been crocheting since my aunt taught me when I was 10 years old. I've progressed from doll clothes to KAS squares and garments[and a few other things in between :-) ]. I've been a forum member for about 5 years and really enjoy helping to keep the children warm.
