Crochet Flower

Here's a close up of the crochet flower that I used on this trivet.  The pattern is from a leaflet I purchased about 4 years ago at my local quilt store.  The leaflet is titled Crochet Candy - Embellishments & More

I used pattern #2, Moss Rose.  The actual size of your crochet flower is determined by the size of your yarn and hook.  I used Martha Stewart extra soft wool blend yarn in color #500, bakery box white.  My hook was a size H/8.  The trivet was almost 14" in diameter so I needed a good sized crochet flower to balance out the size of the trivet.  The circumference of my flower is 4 1/2".

And it is almost 1" thick.  I must really like this pattern because out of the 7 patterns in the leaflet, this is the only one I've made so far.  I used it here, here, and here.  Perhaps the next time I feel the need to embellish with a crochet flower, I will choose one of the other patterns.  I have a tendency to be a creature of habit, so time will tell.  :)

I am on track with the Colette Patterns Hawthorne Sew Along, so that will continue to be the focus of my sewing attention this week.  Have a productive sewing, knitting, crocheting, painting, whatever-it-is-you-enjoy week, my friends.
