This week I am sharing the final quilt inspired block of our Spring crochet along! If you are just joining us you can find our more about this fun corner to corner crochet along here.
Part of what makes doing a CAL fun is sharing with other crocheters who are also participating. I invite you to join my crochet group on Facebook, this is a great place to share your progress, ask questions and participate in other fun yarny shenanigans.
This blanket pattern assumes knowledge of the Corner to Corner (C2C) stitch. If you need a tutorial please check out this post.
Star Flower Block
This block goes by a few different names. I’ve seen LeMoyne Star, Lemon Star, 8-point Star. I like Star Flower the best and it fits in with our crochet along name too. The block I’m doing today is actually a variation of the traditional block pattern.
The top star below is the traditional block and the one below is the one we are doing today. Please ignore my daughter’s horse drawing and my other scribbles, this graph ragged piece of graph paper has been through the wringer in this crochet along.

LET’S GET STARTED, HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
-Your worsted weight yarn. I used 4 coordinating colors and my main color (white). Please feel free to use your scraps or stash for this project. Just be sure that your main color stays the same for the entire block. Also, the design will stand out more if there’s a high contrast between your main color and coordinating colors.
-scissors, tapestry needle
Guage: Each 7×7 c2c block should measure approx: 5 in square
You’ll also need the printable chart. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD
If you want the line by line written instructions of the increases/decreases and color changes, you can purchase the ad-free pdf version of this pattern on Ravelry. It’s only $5 and I will update the pattern as each new square is released.
STARTING METHOD AND DIRECTION FOR EACH BLOCK
Note: place a stitch marker on block number 1 once it’s in position to start block 2. This will mark the “front” side. All blocks start on the front side.

I can’t download as it’s in docs form not pdf. So far all are pdf, but this one. Thank you!
Thanks for the heads up! I just fixed it to the PDF version
wonderful square. I like both versions on your graph paper, and weirdly I am thinking of making the traditional version for my square.. and later on, I will do the modern design for another afghan. I have really learnt much from this CAL.
