Today’s Square: Floral Overlay
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: James G Davis
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic. TLC Essentials Red Plum, RHSS Sierra, TLC Heathers Lt. Denim.
Pattern from: Ravelry
Notes: Holy guacamole, this is a fiddly square!! It’s worked in two pieces–the flower and the loopy part are one piece. Then you make the back part and while you’re making it you attach the loopy parts (which contain picots, too) on two different rounds. I probably wouldn’t make this one again, and I wish I’d chosen a more contrasty color for the loopy parts. From the “50 Fabulous Crochet Squares” book. To make things worse, all three skeins of yarn knotted on me during the crochet–even the yarn didn’t like it. I was so tired when I finished it I couldn’t even get a decent pic.
