About this pattern

This project is made using my Tulip Square. The Tulip Square is made with basic stitches such as chains, double crochet stitches and puff stitches.

It’s called the Tulip Square as the stitches resemble tulips, which is a symbol of my country: the Netherlands.

Assembly

Arrange all squares and triangles as indicated by diagram below with the good sides facing upwards. Sl st everything together using a loose tension.
