This Sampler is a bit different from the usual Sampler Pattern as it’s worked horizontally instead of in a collection of squares. The 17 different stitches that make up this sampler are worked in rows that are repeated as many times as you like, in colour combinations that you prefer & using the hook your comfortable with… therefore , although I’ve given yarn & hook requirements, this is your project – work with your own preferred yarns, colours & appropriate hook.
~ Requirements for rainbow rug (afghan) as featured in photo: 200g (7.1 oz) of each: yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, green. Chocolate Brown 50g (1.77oz)
Hook size: 4.50 (US: G)…I used Bendigo Classic yarn.
~ Requirements for Beige/brown rug (afghan) as featured in photo: 270g (9.53oz) of each: siege, brown, cream, 23g (.9oz) orange
Hook size: 4.50 (US: G)…I used economy yarns from my stash.
I hope this is an enjoyable new project for you to try & create something that you will be proud to show off or gift to family or friends.
The Big Flower crochet pattern is one for those of you who love making rugs (afghans). The squares are largish, work up quickly & so your project grows at a satisfying rate.
& remember… you don’t have to follow my colours… work in your own favourite combinations or go through your stash & use up some of those lovely tiddly bits that aren’t enough for complete projects but you’ve never had the heart to discard…
I probably wouldn’t recommend this pattern to an absolute crochet beginner but if you have some basic crochet skills & are willing to try something a little different, I think you’re really going to enjoy this one…
This bright, cheerful BIG FLOWER crochet pattern with squares measuring approx 24 cm (9 ½”) x 24 cm (9 ½”) can be made using scrap yarn from your stash or you can create your own favourite colour combos.
Make as many squares as you need depending on your project: a little cot cover, a medium TV knee rug or a king size bedspread

afghan square pattern
joining squares together & border instructions
both UK & US terminology
clear stitch drawings & pattern diagrams (charts)
