Free pattern: Mayapple Flower Square

Mayapple Flower 6" Square, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

I’ve always loved the look of Irish crochet. Here’s an Irish rose choker I crocheted back in 2012.

Irish rose choker #crochet project on @ucrafterFor this granny square, I wanted to combine elements of the classic Irish rose, but I took my inspiration from the mayapple flower, which has six petals.

This square has a delicate beauty that makes it perfect for a daybed cover or a throw at the end of the bed in a guest room. (Though I love making baby blankets, I wouldn’t recommend this square for that since it will probably not be happy about all the wear and tear.)
