    Okay, I do know how to do the flowers.* I don't have a pattern in the house I don't think, that I know where to find it any way.* Basically what you do is make a chain - length depends on how large you want to make the flower.* They you form a circle out of the chain by crocheting into the first chain.* Then to make the petals, you make 3 chain or so, and then do 2 or 3 double trebles, then a treble. You work into the circle not iinto the chains of the circle iykwim.* That forms the shape of the petal.* You repeat this all the way round the circle till you get your finished flower.To make the square around the flower, you work a number of chains from the top of one of the petals and kinda make enough to form a square, working into the petals as you go round.This is probably not very clear and is only from memory.* Have a bit of a fiddle and see how you go.
