I went through a short phase where I was thinking I would be super original and name all my patterns after flowers, lol. Turns out, pretty much every crocheter in existence is inspired in some way by flowers and nature. So I’m going to be really fancy and say this one is part of my Floral Series. The rest of my patterns will be named after… idk, something hipster and quirky, but not so idiosyncratic that no one knows what it is.
This is my most popular design, by far. It’s been available on Ravelry for almost a year now and it does the best (as of 11/20). This design should work well with any yarn and appropriately sized hook. I think some bulky yarn and 12-15 of these sew together would make a lovely blanket.
If you want to download the pattern for free, you can find it here, in my Ravelry store.
