Double Raised Flower Granny Square Pattern

Flower 3.9I’ve been continuing to chip away at making Granny Squares for the blanket I’m making, which has a raised flower on every second square.  Over the years I have experiments with many different varieties of flowers in my glass work, and wanted to see what I could come up with in wool.  Every medium has it’s advantages, and it’s limitations so it’s a fun challenge.  After making some ‘simple’ flowers, I wanted to step it up a bit.  Below is the pattern for the flower which has two off-set rounds of petals.  For this Granny Square, I made the flower first, then added the final three rows to transform it from a round to a square.  You can see my post on how to make a raised flower on how to do this.
