Funky Flower Crochet Pattern

Monday, 3 March 2014

There are never enough crochet appliques. And the only thing that is more fun than crocheting them, is designing them :) I was in the mood for an elaborate layered flower and this is the result. When finished, the flower is approximately 7cm / 3" in diameter.
