As mentioned in Zontee’s post earlier this month, we will be featuring flower patterns for the month of May, and this week, I’m sharing some patterns for flowers you will most likely find in your own garden and at the floral shop.
Knit and crochet flowers are so fun because you can take the traditional form of the flower and mix and match an assortment of colors to create a one-of-a-kind design. Think about all of the different color combinations you could use to create your own special Chrysanthemum (pictured below); use a variegated or self-striping yarn like Amazing, or Sock-Ease, and watch the petals change colors.
