You can choose any colors you like to make Crochet Framed Flower Square. I crocheted the square you see in the photo with three different colors of 6 strand embroidery floss and a 2 mm crochet hook and it measures about 8 cm (about 3 inches).
Besides your threads or yarns and hook, you will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.
