Raised Flower on Granny Square #2

Flower 2.9

I have been busy beavering away making a granny square blanket, and after making several Granny Squares using my first raised flower pattern (see Raised Flower on Granny Square #1) I began to experiment with new flowers.  This pattern has twice as many ‘petals’ and allows the fourth colour of the square show through.
