Flower Pattern

This pattern, written by me from a chart on caminho-de-mesa.com, produced a flower that was a nice surprise, given the chart didn’t red flower3come with a picture 🙂

purple flowerThe red flower was made using 4 ply cotton; the purple one was made using 3 ply – hardly any difference, I feel.

chartThe large chart is for the base of the flower, the smaller chart the centre. The writing is in Portuguese; a Google translation help very little 🙂

Flower size: 110 x 140mm

1.75mm hook

Make flower base & centre pieces: sew centre to base.
