Popcorn Flower Square Motif - Crochet Pattern


Hi Everyone! 🙂

I have got an easy Popcorn Flower Square crochet pattern for you today.
It's worked up in only 3 rounds using sport weight cotton yarn and a 3 mm crochet hook. The square motifs are all joined along the way using the ''join as you go'' method. You can use them for pillow covers, bags, afghans or any other projects.

If you would like to learn how to crochet the Popcorn Flower Squares as well as how to join them together, follow the written pattern / photo tutorial and video tutorial below. 

Hope you enjoy!
Happy crocheting!😊

How To Crochet The Square Motif



Start with ch4 and join with a sl st. into first ch to form a ring.
