Crochet Afghan Block / Crochet Motif #88

Hello all crochet lovers,
I am still working on squares for a 25 different squares blanket. I think this crochet afghan block is the easiest one all squares for this project as of now. As always there are some tricky stitches but they all are doable. This square has a flower in a middle and can be used as a part of any flower themes blanket If you are going to use this pattern for a different project you can replace the last 2 rounds of single crochets with one round of double crochets.
