Weekend in Stockholm Throw Free Crochet Pattern
Classic Scandinavian-inspired crochet is a great way to add a rustic accent to a modern decor, or to really polish up the old timey appearance of a vintage interior.
The Weekend in Stockholm throw is a traditional square-based blanket with flower centers. The background is densely stitched, giving the blanket a heavy drape, but the flowers themselves use voids to outline and highlight the petals. This is a beautiful project whose appearance belies the fact that it is relatively easy to make. This is a beautiful pattern that you will turn into an accessory to be cherished forever. A link to free pattern is under the photos.

Flower Garden Granny Square Free Crochet Pattern
If flower-based squares are your thing, you can also have a look at the flower garden granny square pattern. These are lovely, three-dimensional squares with a highly textured center. Unlike the squares of the other blanket, they make greater use of voice to define the flowers, and therefore airier and lace-like. It may be quite the thing to combine the two into one project.
