Maybelle Square Crochet Pattern

A couple of months ago, or even longer, this idea of turning the Maybelle flower into a crochet square started to take form in my head. I had a few goes without luck. I am telling you, you do NOT want to see my terrible trials... I left the idea to sit for a while and one day one of my readers, a Dutch girl named Jane, sent me a picture of how she had turn the Maybelle flowers into squares in a blanket. I instantly contacted her to ask if she could give me some hints how she had made her squares. I have tweaked her initial instructions, as I always tend to put my own twist on things (typical me). I know many of you have waited for this pattern so here we go.

I have written the pattern in UK/US terms.

Squaring the Big Circle Tutorial

Because there has been a little more interest in the first blanket I made from this pattern, (and the fact that I was so happy with how it turned out), I thought it would be a great excuse to attempt a written pattern/tutorial to share! I think this square (like most crocheted squares) has limitless potential, so I see this as more of a guideline than an exact pattern.

Once you get the basic pattern down you can play with colors and joining methods. For example, for the first blanket I made, every circle had a white background and I used the join-as-you-go method that I learned from Sarah London. For the blanket that I'm working on now, I'm making different colored backgrounds and plan on adding a row of single crochet in white on the last round and then sewing the squares together.
