Mallow Square


A picture of a crochet blanket with this square design can be found on Pinterest but the link goes to a sold out blanket on a homewares store called Malvamood in Uruguay. I haven't been able to source any proper pattern for the blanket so I sat down and nutted it out with the help of @cypresstextiles at the end. If anyone does know the source of the original pattern please let me know.

I am naming the square the Mallow Square, as Malva in Spanish translates to Mallow.
