A Flower a Day: Week Three - 'Simply Crochet' Flowers
Apart from the crochet puff stitch flower in the Simply Crochet (issue 16) project supplement, there were seven other flower patterns in the main magazine (and that's not counting a couple of other lacy/afghan flower motifs!). Quite handily, that's a week's worth - and here they are.
The large flower came out rather differently to the original, probably because I wasn't using the same yarn and hook. It's interestingly 3D, but I'm glad I wasn't making the six suggested as cushion decorations, because it seemed to go on forever and was getting a little hyperbolic by the end, when the curls were tamed by flattening them down and doing a contrast edge around the outermost tips of the petals.
