FLORA 2 CROCHET FLOWERS PATTERN


In May 2016 my inspiration for designing these little crochet flowers came from the spring blossoms my husband and I witnessed whilst on our walks through the countryside. I love how these naturally wild flowers can be so tiny and delicate. I am not trying to imitate their wild beauty exactly, I've just interpreted what I saw and created a crochet flower which will remind me of the original. I hope they will delight you just as much as they have delighted me.

Crochet flowers are crochet in the round using two (2) colours. I used remnants from my yarn stash mainly DMC Petra Crochet Cotton Size 5 and a 2mm hook.
