Crochet flower granny square pattern / Crochet Motif #6

This granny square was inspired by a well-known African flower square. The idea was to design a similar square but to add some texture to it. It is not very textured, so it can be used for any crochet blanket, pillow cover, or even crochet sweaters or cardigans made of granny squares.
