Endless Summer Afghan Square
"This beautifully textured flower is my take on a Hydrangea. It's created in the round, making it very easy to transform into an afghan square perfect for so many projects, like afghans, tote bags, scarves and more! You'll need a total of 35 yards of worsted weight yarn - I've used Red Heart Super Saver in Turqua, Tea Leaf and Soft White. Caron One Pound and Bernat Super Value are similar alternatives, though you could use any weight yarn with respective crochet hook if gauge isn't essential. You'll also need an H8/5mm crochet hook. If you meet my gauge, you're finished square will come to 4.75" (or 4 3/4"). You can make it larger by adding more rounds to the border. There is a video tutorial included too!"
