I am delighted and very relieved to finally have completed the update and reworking of my Retro Flower Crochet Pattern. It is one of the first patterns I made and when looking over it a little while ago I realised it was in need of a makeover. I finally found time for it and it now comprises of 4 variations of flower rather than 3 and – I think – is a better and cleaner design.
The pattern is available in both UK and US terms and both have been tested. The pattern includes instructions on how to make a standing treble crochet/double crochet and an invisible join. When working treble crochet/double crochet in circles it makes the joining area so much neater – almost invisible. There are photos to illustrate the two techniques as well as one special stitch (half treble 5 together over 5 stitches/ half double crochet 5 together over 5 stitches).
The flowers are fun and colourful (or not if you wish) and can be used for many things – garlands, table decor, coasters and embellishments come to mind.
If you make the flower and use Instagram please #retroflower to share your photos, I would love to see your versions.
