Square Crochet Motifs Pattern: Star Flower

Crochet Pattern Tutorial: How to make a square Star Flower motifMy big project this month has been a new afghan. I started off with a plan to make a basic Granny Square afghan, but decided to design some of my own blocks with a floral theme. I'm using lavender and green to match the purples and greens in out master bedroom.

I needed a few tries to develop this square. I started with the six-pointed star flower at the center. Transforming the flower into a four sided square took a little bit of geometry, but I am really pleased with the finished design.

Gauge: This motif is 7 inches square.
