With this pattern, you will make a colorful square for throws, bags, blankets, afghans, pillows, etc.
If you like rainbows, this square radiates out from the flower center with 7 rounds. The 7 colors of the rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, and violet, but you can let your creativity “blossom” with any colors you choose. The optional final round looks nice in a contrasting color.
This written pattern contains two photo tutorials: 1) how to do the needle join, aka the invisible join, and 2) how to do the pointy picot.
Changing colors on every round works best if you employ the needle join. All your ends will be woven in as you go! Keep your yarn needle and scissors beside you as you work.
Other features of this pattern include: 1) turning the piece over after every round — on the outer rounds — to prevent the block from “swirling” and 2) joining in the corners to provide a seamless appearance.
