Crochet Blocks

This is one of the first techniques i adopted in creating crocheted tops. Starting from a ring, form a floral pattern with even-numbered petals. The principle lies in that you have to create the corners of the ‘block’ from the  four petals of your floral pattern. Next is that you have to put the crochet blocks together as you go.

I always do floral patterns for crochet blocks coz their easier to do. Plus you wouldn’t notice where you put one together. 🙂

Once you finished the main blocks you could just do simple chains or shell stiches to add length to  your fabric. Also you could use different colors for the main flower and  the outer layer of the block. Your friend might not even noticed that a number of ur crochet blouses are actually made from the same pattern. 🙂
