Inspired by Bonita Patterns’ pattern support guru, Janet Smith with her mantra: “Check your gauge. Check your gauge. Om!”
This flower is such a breeze to make so don’t be surprised if you end up making a mountain of these. They could be used on countless handmade gifts, Spring themed wreaths and a complement for accessories and decor.
I made it with our yummy Dream Baby yarn which is20% off this week. Scroll down to see the beautiful colorways in stock. (Offer valid from Mar 25 - Mar 28. No coupon needed).
Note: Readers are asking where to find the pattern for the afghan under the flowers. This is one of my premium patterns. It uses the “Embossed Crochet” technique, which translate the texture and depth of Aran knitting. You can find the paid patternHERE.
