These pretty flowers only take minutes to make, and are perfect for adding as embellishments to your projects. You can add a pin to the back of the flower to make a brooch, or add one to a child’s hat. You could also make some crochet leaves to add to your flowers, and you can find a leaf pattern in this post below. Just click the link

Blooming Crochet Flowers and Leaves

I was recently sent some lovely new colours of my favourite yarns King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK.  It was always my go-to yarn for making crochet flowers for years. It gives great stitch definition and the colours are so beautiful. Sadly they have discontinued the Mustard shade. It is the most perfect mustard and any other mustard fans will know what I mean! I had a small amount in my stash and you can see the flower I made in the pictures. I was gifted the 2 new shades called Steel and Thistle, both lovely gentle colours.
