The Springtime Blossom Square

The Story Behind...

The Springtime blossom square is a gorgeous contemporary granny square design inspired by the friendship between two yarn friends; Jill and Yralmy also known as @gumleaf_crochet and @mindfully_crafty over at Instagram.

Jill och Yralmy about the experience, square and game: 

This square is part of a really fun and special game called #whatwhereyouthinkinggame. First, Tess @crochetedbyTess (@sistersinstitch) and Jill played the game and created the beautiful Patch of Poises square and after that Jill thought that it was so much fun that she couldn’t wait to ask me to play along with her.

I felt very honoured and of course I was absolutely delighted to say yes and start designing my first pattern ever with her, so we quickly got to it. I created the first round and Jill continued with the second and so on. We took our time as life & other crochet commitments had to be done but we came back to our shared project whenever possible and we were so eager to see what ideas the other one had come up with.

“It really became something special when Yralmy created round 5, our pattern really had a direction at that stage. A second round of pretty petals flowed easily off our hooks, then to square it up and create the most gorgeous flower we have made together” – Jill said.

We called it the Springtime Blossom because we completed the square right in time for Spring in Australia and the blossom had bloomed from the combination of our two minds.”

Thank you so much Jill and Yralmy for playing the #whatwereyouthinkinggame

I’m so happy for this design of yours and can’t wait to work it up!
