Disclosure: The Strawflower Blanket has been a free pattern since its release in 2022. As of November 2023 this pattern has now moved to a new blogging platform and is only being offered as a paid only PDF download. Thank you for understanding.
When I set out to create these crochet flower blanket squares I knew I wanted them to be larger squares. I have a special place in my heart for my Sunflower Pillow so I decided to make some slight changes and turn it into a multi-color flower blanket.

Final Dimensions: Each square measures 10 inches x 10 inches (25 cm x 25 cm) giving this blanket a 50 inch x 50 inch (127 cm x 127 cm) finished size.
I made a total of 25 squares for my blanket. You can make as many as you’d like to!
- Crochet Hook: 5mm/H – adjust your hook size if you adjust the yarn weight. I love using Furls Hooks. They are so comfortable and I don’t get stressed hands or wrists like I once did. Use the code HOOK15 for 15% off.
- Yarn: I used Willow Yarns in their “Rise” line (58% cotton/42% acrylic), which is a DK weight yarn. You really could go with any weight you would like to. Your squares will just end up slightly smaller or larger. You can choose whichever size blanket you want to depending on how large your squares are.
- Colors Used and Yardage:
- I used one color for the sashing (final rounds) on each square. The color I used was “Charcoal” – 8 oz/240 g (760 yds/696m)
- For four of the other colors (Caramel, Regal, Rouge, and Stonewash) I used approximately 3.5 oz/108g (332 yds/313 m)
- For my last color (“Meadow”) I used 4.3 oz/130g (409 yds/377 m)
- I used Meadow not only for my squares but also for the border around the entire blanket.
- When I first started this blanket I tested out my square as a solid and it was really beautiful. If you would prefer a solid blanket you will need approximately 16 oz/480 g (1,501 yds/1,400 m) of yarn.
- Blocking is very important. Be sure to block all of your squares. This will give your square nice crisp corners and all of the parts will lay nice and flat once off the blocking board.
- Attaching your crochet flower blanket squares: To connect my squares, I chose to hold my squares together, wrong sides facing in, and slip stitch them together. This creates a visible seam on the right side of your blanket. I really like how that made each square stand alone. If you notice that you’re slip stitching too tightly and your squares are puckering, go up a hook size.
- Border: I added a Single Crochet border around my whole blanket. After I did this, I gave all the edges and corners one final blocking.
