This crochet flower afghan square measures 3 inches across. I used the popcorn stitch in the center in order to create a nice flower.
This square would also look lovely on its own if crocheted in a variety of colours. Or, choose a variety of colours and mix and match it with other squares if you like. You can use it in a full-sized or in a baby afghan.
