Crochet Afghan Block / Crochet Motif #86

Hi There,
Are you following a project of a 25 different squares blanket? If so here is another free crochet square pattern for this afghan. As usual, I could not resist and create another block with a 3D flower in a middle. If you like this square and want to crochet a blanket using only this square I think it is possible to use this large square for the central part, and then go around with a round made of smaller squares using only a middle part of this motif. While another part of this square starting from round 9 can be used as a border pattern for your blanket.
