12 inch Afghan Square Photo Tutorial Pane in My Dahlia

This is a Step by Step Photo Tutorial for the 12 Inch Afghan Pane in My Dahlia Square making this a perfect addition for your Crochet along (CAL) 

12 inch afghan square pattern free

I was asked if I would be interested in designing a 12 inch afghan square to take part in a Crochet A Long (CAL) with  American Crochet.I was pretty excited, as this idea had been on my to-do list for a while after seeing so many beautiful blankets last year made by joining 12 inch squares.
I wanted something eye catching and this year I had a beautiful Dahlia outside my window, so I wanted to created something that represented the beautiful flower I saw every morning through my window pane.
However actually trying to get a flower into a Square was a little more challenging than I first thought, and I wanted to make this as elegant but EASY as possible to make.
SO here is the Aptly named 'Pane in my Dahlia 12 inch afghan
square.  
Double Knit (DK - 3)  5.00mm hook

If you find you have reached your 12 inches before the last round it is ok to finish here.

I used Red heart Bella (3 or Double knit) and REd heart Lisa Both are beautiful and soft with just the right amount of stretch.


Notes: I am a very loose crocheter, The chain loop rounds should be nice and even and loose (If you crochet tighter then perhaps think of using another size up for these rounds.
Again this is the first attempt for me and writing this pattern down so if you come across anything you think is unclear, or could be written for better understanding please do not hesitate to leave me a comment.
