CROCHET TIP:
Fasten the threads after every colour change. Let the thread from previous round be worked in the piece a bit before cutting it off and fastening it (work with the new colour around the previous colour).

POT HOLDER WITH FLOWER:
Pot holder consists of 2 different squares which are placed double and worked tog.

FLOWER SQUARE:
Crochet 4 ch on hook size 5 mm with strong yellow and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 1 ch, 8 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first dc. READ CROCHET TIP!
ROUND 2: Switch to medium pink. Work 6 ch (= 1 tr + 3 ch), * 1 tr in next dc, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 tr with 3 ch between each.
ROUND 3: 1 ch, then work as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 3 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 4: Switch to shocking pink. Work 7 ch, * 1 dc between the next 2 leaves, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-loops.
ROUND 5: 1 ch, then work as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 5 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 6: Work 10 ch, * 1 dc between the next 2 leaves, 9 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-loops.
ROUND 7: 1 ch, then work as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 1 tr, 5 dtr, 1 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves. Cut the thread and pull it through st on hook.
ROUND 8: Switch to pistachio green and start with 1 dc in first dtr on first leaf, 3 ch, * 8 ch (= corner), skip 3 dtr, 1 tr in last dtr on same leaf, 5 ch, 1 dc in first dtr on next leaf, 5 ch, skip 3 dtr, 1 dc in last dtr on same leaf, 5 ch, 1 tr in first dtr on next leaf *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (instead of 1 tr in 1st dtr on next leaf).
ROUND 9: 1 sl st in 8-ch-loop, * 4 tr + 4 ch + 4 tr in ch-loop in the corner, (4 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop), repeat from (-) a total of 3 times, 4 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish with 1 sl st in first tr from beg of round.
ROUND 10: Switch to opal green. * 1 tr in each of the first 4 tr, in ch-loop in the corner work 3 tr + 2 ch + 3 tr, 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr, 4 tr in next ch loop, 3 tr in next ch-loop, 1 tr in the same ch-loop but wait with last pull through, make 1 tr in next ch-loop but wait with last pull through, pull thread through both sts. 3 tr in same ch-loop, 4 tr in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish round with 1 sl st in first tr from beg of round. There are now 29 tr along each side and 2 ch in every corner. Cut the thread.

SQUARE 2:
UNI-COLOURED SQUARE:
Crochet 4 ch on hook size 5 mm with opal green and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Continue to work as follows:

ROUND 1: 3 ch (= 1 tr), 2 tr in ch-ring, 3 ch, * 3 tr in ch-ring, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2: Work 3 ch in 1st tr, 1 tr in every tr until next ch-loop, * in ch-loop work 3 tr, 2 ch and 3 tr, work 1 tr in every tr until next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first tr = 4 ch-loops and 9 tr between each.
