Raised Flower on Granny Square #1

Flower 1.6In an earlier post I showed how to make a granny square with a round center. The real reason was so that I could experiment with making granny squares with a raised flower on it. This is the first of a series of postings on the different types of flowers I have designed.

For this flower, you can complete the square first, or stop after round 3, make the flower, and then continue with rounds 4 up.
