Another inspiring and simple crochet tutorial, a perfect stash-buster project, only nine short rounds. Works up super quick too!
A small beautiful 12 petal flower embedded in a hexagonal motif. To start we will make the flower and work the motif from the backside of the flower i.e. is the base.
One can make the tiny flowers to decorate a greeting card or a frame. But today we are combining the two to form a beautiful motif.
Change the colours to suit your Holiday theme or your mood! Most of all have fun!
