"Perfectly Provincial" Free 12" Crochet Square Pattern

Perfectly Provincial Free 12 Crochet Square Pattern

"What could be more romantic than the French Provincial style? This free 12" afghan square crochet pattern is one of my most textured pieces to date--imagine flowers, vines, trellises, ornate framework on mirrors and table legs--oh my! Incorporating this square into an afghan or home decor project is guaranteed to take to the next level. Knowing how to work post stitches, clusters, shells, and popcorn stitches will make this project go much more smoothly, but the amount of color changes could still slow you down. Allow a bit of extra time to complete this project. You'll feel more relaxed and happy this way, which is the whole point of crochet!"

Notes-Mid-round color changes will be made by pulling a loop of the new color through the final 2 loops of a sc, dc, or tr st, or the last 3 loops of a hdc st. Color changes at the beginning of a new round can be done with a chainless starting method.
-This square has a lot of color changes. To cut down on the amount of ends I had to work in I carried my working yarn across the back of the square and worked over them in the next round if at all possible. I was able to hide most of my strings this way. I did cut my yarn for the VIP “buds” in round 13, the Linen “shells” in round 14, and the Linen “flowers” in round 17.
-If you have not done a lot of projects with a large number of color changes, and the color changes have you thoroughly confused, try making a solid colored square first.
