Crochet A Frilly Flower

"Just living is not enough" said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower".

Hans Christian Anderson

Since I posted my simple bunting tutorial, I've been asked several times how to crochet the flower I pictured.

I daresay very similar flowers have been made up and down the Land Of Blog but, since I didn't follow a pattern for it, I am happy to share my little Frilly Flower (using UK terminology) with you ...

Happy days.



  1. It's a lovely flower and another great tutorial :O)x

  2. When I'm feeling a little braver I'll give this a whirl as it looks so well explained and easy to follow!
