PATTERN DETAILS

A beautiful flower with six well-defined separate lacy petals. It is worked without rejoining the yarn in just 5 rounds. This pattern is a modern take on a piece of vintage crochet from my Great Grandmother's work. A beautiful embellishment to crochet or knitted items or as a brooch or hair slide. A great stash buster, can be worked with small amounts of yarn in any weight. Just use a suitable hook to give a tight finish. Measures approximately 12cm and uses less than 10g when worked in double knit yarn with 3.5mm hook. This version of the pattern uses UK crochet terminology. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY chain double (US single) treble (US double) work around previous rows SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12 cm if worked in DK with 3.5mm hook

Supplies Needed

  • a small amount of yarn

I love to knit and crochet: My fingers start to itch if I'm away from a hook or needles too long or when inspiration hits! I began to design when I found it hard to find fashionable, wearable patterns. Crochet isn't all about doilies and dodgy granny square cardigans and knitting needs to lose its 'dodgy Christmas jumper, knit by Nana' image. And so 'Not So Granny' was born. Most of my designs are seamless as it is a more fluid and exciting way to knit and crochet. I'm also full time Mum to three small children. I've always done a wide variety of crafts for fun and relaxation including crochet, knitting, beaded jewellery, silversmithing, cross stitch, embroidery and sewing. A Suffolk girl at heart I now live just a tiny hop from the border on the edge of the flat, flat fens.
