Along with granny squares, I find crochet flowers addictive to make. They’re also really quick to do. I first saw them on the Attic 24 blog where Lucy has written the pattern for them.
So I started off with three.
It’s not long before the collection grows…
I decided to try some bigger flowers too, they look like roses. You can find the pattern for these here.
And then I started on some leaves.
I’m finding that you need a better quality of yarn for smaller crochet. I used some cheapy acrylic for most of my flowers and leaves and I think they’d look a lot better crocheted in some better yarn and colours. But these are a start anyway.
But in the meantime I have to decide what to do with my crochet flower collection. I think they’d be nice sewn onto a blanket or a scarf. Or maybe stuck on little pea sticks to make a bunch of them.
