One evening I wanted to tidy up my crochet box because it had been full of mess. I replaced the stuff one by one. Among them, there was a beautiful flower motif and looks dirty and fainted colorless. It was in my box for 10 – 12 years. This flower motif had given me by my aunt who taught me how to crochet when I was 9 years old. I had completely forgotten about this flower motif since then so I decided to crochet and post this 8 petal flower motif as this week’s free pattern.
Don’t forget to add this pattern to Ravelry queue.
Skill Level Intermediate
Materials (I used)
Sport yarn weight (15WPI)
ch = chain
dc = double crochet

This flower motif work in rounds. After round two, 8 petals begin with shell stitch. If you want make large flower, repeat rounds by increasing chains and dc stitches in shell st.
