My Flamingo Square crochet design is a quick and easy pattern for a really cute and fun crochet block. It was first published in Crafty magazine years ago but is now rejigged, rewritten and twice as nice!
Sadly, the magazine is no longer running but a lady contacted me recently asking how to get her hands on the pattern. I’d completely forgotten all about it!
Here is the original square as it appeared in the magazine…
So, rummaging through my files I found the original. It was one of the first patterns I had published and really needed a bit of updating so I’ve rewritten it and used different yarn for this latest version.
Flamingo Square Pattern Info…
The square is really easy to make! You’ll need Worsted or Aran weight yarn, a 5mm (H) size hook to make this square. The block uses basic crochet stitches and then the flamingo is cross stitched onto the block (I’ve included some photos for you in the pattern to show how that’s done).
Size: 13 cm x 13 cm (just over 5 inches x 5 inches)
Where to get the pattern…
You can also purchase the pattern and yarn from Love Crochet. One ball of each colour will make approximately 15 squares which is enough for a little blanket!
