The crochet Lace Popcorns Flower Square is the seventh pattern of the 6″-Flower Squares collection.
This small afghan block of about 6″ (12.5 cm) is a fun and quick project that you can crochet using scrap yarn or a planned color palette.
For crocheting this flower square, it is important to have clear in mind the distinction between cluster stitches and decreases!
If you’re interested, I wrote a little about it in this blog post about the 3-treble crochet cluster stitch.
For the last round of the flower, like for the Pop Petals Flower Square, we’ll be using some popcorn stitches to create a rich crown for our floral square.
