May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along: Tulip Block

It’s time for another May Flowers Blanket square to be released on the blog! I can’t believe that all of the blanket squares are almost all released, and the complete free crochet pattern version of this crochet flower blanket is made available. It’s been so much fun to see all of the beautiful tapestry crochet flowers being created from this pattern. The tapestry crochet pattern being released today is the Tulip crochet square!

My Inspiration

There’s something about tulips that I just love. Maybe it’s the simplicity or the wide range of colors, but every time I see a tulip field in a photo or on tv I just want to surround myself with them. The vibrant colors of tulips always bring a smile to my face, and they’re such a fun spring flower! I wanted to capture the simplicity of the tulip with this tapestry crochet flower pattern, especially amongst all of the details of the other crochet flowers.

The Yarn

For this crochet tulip square, I wanted to do a purple tulip to bring a cooler side to the blanket amidst the warm colors I had been doing in previous blocks. I found a beautiful lavender shade of Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, and used a periwinkle color to add a blue edging to accent the flower. I love how it turned out! What’s great about a tulip, is that you can do it in any colors you’d like! You could do it in reds, yellows, pinks, or any other color you can think of. That helps make this tapestry crochet pattern a great stash buster! If you are looking for some good yarns to use, and don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, some other great affordable alternatives I enjoy using are: Caron Simply Soft, Red Heart Super Saver, or Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice.

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is made using US crochet terminology, but the UK equivalents are listed in the Key.
  • If you come across a part where it’s just a color in between two commas, then that stands for just one half double crochet.
  • The pattern involves color changes using tapestry crochet. Experience with color work is recommended, but if you’re a beginner to tapestry crochet than you can totally do it!
  • For a complete color chart of each of the blocks, along with the written pattern and some bonus blocks, check out the 39 page premium pdf here.
  • I recommend reading through the pattern completely before beginning just to make sure that you understand everything in the pattern.
  • Color changes happen are indicated by the color appearing in parentheses. See chart for full picture of the color changes.
  • The arrows at the beginning of the rows indicate what direction the row is worked on in the chart.
  • If you’ve never done tapestry crochet before, I’ve created a beginner’s guide to tapestry crochet that shows you how to do it. See the written and photo tutorial at The Beginner’s Guide to Tapestry Crochet.
