Poppy and Corn Granny Square

Poppy and corn are symbols of the harvest and autumn and so it felt fitting that these motifs should also feature in  Fall in New England Cushion Crochet Along. The Poppy and Corn square is part 3 of the CAL. This crochet square shows the vibrant red poppy surrounded by sheaves of corn. white cranberry flower surrounded by the juicy berries.

Pattern notes

The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link.

The square is worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before.

[Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.]

For the first stitch on each row: Crochet 1 chain to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Crochet 2 chains if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and crochet 3 chains if the round starts with a treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the row.
