Easy pattern for a fall crochet square that would make a beautiful crochet project. You can use this pattern for blankets, cushion covers and even garments.
Fall is such a magical time of the year! Although, I do love summer there is something quite appealing about autumn. However, let’s get it right. I do enjoy the start of the fall season, when the weather is still quite warm. The sun is still shining although it is not as intense.
I do not particularly enjoy the rainy cold days, but they are also important. Wonder why? Nothing to do with natural cycles. Rainy days are made for crochet, right?!
Fall Crochet Square Inspiration
So I am bringing you a beautiful fall crochet square pattern. I have been inspired by quite an unusual and often overlooked flower. Rudbeckia is sometimes referred to as black-eyed Susan or coneflower. I personally think it should be called the sunflower of fall!
My fall inspired crochet square is loosely based on this understated flower. I remember Rudbeckia growing at the side of my grandma’s house! It was such a low maintenance flower that came back every year. And every year when Rudbeckias appeared, I knew the summer was over and it was time to go back to school.
My Rudbeckia Fall Crochet Square pattern is a beginner friendly pattern. The flower motif is created by using color changes too. The square works up really quick.
You can use this lovely square for many projects. The most obvious would be crochet blankets or cushion covers. However, you can also use it for bags, table runners, coasters and even sweaters or cardigans.
