Introduction

Vintage Flower Garden CAL (5 parts)

Welcome to this 5 part CAL! Thanks to the proofreaders and testers in the fantastic group on Facebook, Crochet A Long, this pattern is ready to be released. I could never have done it without their help.

This is my design and if you want to know something about me you can click here.

Vintage style and crochet really come well together according to me. Flowers and colours inspired me to try to create a blanket in vintage style. There are so many wonderful colour ways it is hard to choose from, but pinks and browns always work.

I hope you will enjoy the patterns and the wonderful world of crocheting.

I used my original pattern. In the tutorials other colours may appear than those listed.

Colours in tutorial pictures may show different colours.

Joining squares

Lay out your pieces as shown below to determine placement.
Using colour A, make joins #1 by putting your pieces on top of each other and with right sides facing each other, join in the corner chsp, ch1, sc in corner chsp, 33sc using back loops only, sc in final chsp, fasten off. Repeat for the other 3 joins.
Make joins #2 by putting your pieces on top of each other as before and join in the first chsp of the 2 smaller squares. Ch1, sc in chsp, 33sc in back loops only, sc in corner chsp of these 2 smaller squares. Sc in corner chsp of the next 2 joined squares and the middle square, 33sc in back loops only, sc2tog through both corner chsp of each smaller square and at the same time, as the next st of the middle square, 33sc in back loops only, sc in the last corner chsp of the 2 joined squares and the last corner chsp of the middle square, sc through both corner chsp of the next 2 small squares, 33sc in back loops only, sc in final corner chsps, fasten off.
