crochet a flower square in one colour

A friend on Craft Share's face book page asked for the flower square pattern in one colour. I tried it with a 4mm crochet hook and soft cotton string that I bought at a stationary shop some time ago. Think it's time for tea ...

Use one colour in double knit 100% cotton and a 3,5mm crochet hook.

Loosely chain 3 (counts as first treble of round 1).

Round 1 (inside of flower): Work 15 trebles into 3rd chain from the hook.

 Join with a slip stitch to the 3rd chain.

Round 2 (petals of flower): Slipstitch into space between 1st and 2nd trebles of round 1.

 Chain 3 (counts as first treble of round 2).

Work 3 trebles into the same space as the slipstitch.

 *Skip the next 2 trebles from round 1 and work a group of 4 trebles into the next space between trebles*.

Repeat from * to * until you have 8 groups of 4 trebles each.

Join with a slip stitch to the 3rd chain made that started round 2.

Round 3 (square): Slipstitch into the space right below, between last and first 4 treble-group of round 2.

Chain 3 (counts as a treble).

Work 2 half trebles and 1 treble into the same space as slipstitch.

*(3 trebles, 2 double trebles, 3 trebles) into the next space between petals to form the corner.

(1 treble, 2 half trebles, 1 treble) into the next space between petals.*

Repeat from * to * 2 more times.

In the last space between 2 petals work (3 trebles, 2 double trebles, 3 trebles).

Join with a slip stitch to the 3rd chain made that started round 3.

Round 4: Chain 1. Double crochet in the back loop of the next 7 stitches of round 3.

Work 2 double crochet into next stitch of round 3.

*1 Double crochet into the back loop of each of the next 11 stitches.

Double crochet in the next stitch.*

Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Double crochet in the back loop of the next 4 stitches.

Join with a slipstitch to the chain that started round 4.

Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.

Hi Christelle, ek wil nog 6 maak, dan't ek 8. Dink dit sal genoeg wees ...
