This is how the table cloth would look like if the flowers are arranged in straight lines:
And this is how the tablecloth would look like if four leaves are touching, so the flowers are arranged in squares:
I think it would fit our balcony table nicely if I make 8 x 8 squares, which would mean that I have to make 64 squares. I'm not sure about how to join the squares yet. If I use all-four-leaves-touching arrangement, then I will definitely join them by using a border, so there will be some "white" seperating the leaves.
So how long will it take me to make this tablecloth?
7 squares a week => 2.3 months
5 squares a week => 3.2 months
3 squares a week => 5.3 months
It would be nice if I could use it this summer, so I should try and make 5 squares each week at least. But for now I really should finish crocheting my blue blouse first.
