Here is another crochet pattern for a 3″ afghan square. I used the popcorn stitch in the center in order to create the resemblance of a flower. And thus, the 3″ popcorn flower afghan square was born.
I am currently planning on putting together an afghan with multiple squares, and I’m hoping to make this one of the dominant squares. However, I think this square would also look lovely on its own if crocheted in a variety of colors. You can use it in a full-sized or in a baby afghan.
