After this blog post I'm going to be MIA for a little while. I'm going on a business trip to Saskatoon next week and therefore will have some really busy days and no time for blogging. So far I'm not 100% looking forward to it as the time difference between Saskatoon and Germany is 8 hours - I am so going to have the jetlag of my life when coming back home! At least, I'll make it back home just in time for Mother's Day :) So before I'm heading Canada-bound, I would like to share another crochet flower with you...
I found the pattern for this crochet flower over at Sarah London's Flickr Stream and of course I had to try it out :)
Wool: Schachenmayr Bravo Color 2086 (violet print)
I quickly wanted to share with you the pattern for the crochet flower I blogged about here!
Here it is:

I recieved a couple of questions regarding this pattern, especially about round 6. Therefore I quickly came up with some videos, one for each round. I hope that explains things a bit better...

PS: This is the first pattern I ever wrote down in English so I hope there aren't too many mistakes in there ;)
First of all a huge WELCOME to all my new followers :) I hope, you'll enjoy following my blog!
I'm currently working on some smaller projects. While browsing the internet a couple of weeks ago I found a picture of a really great crochet flower. Unfortunately, no pattern was available. Therefore, I improvised. But I think my result is quite cute :) It would make a wonderful sunflower with the right yarn, don't you think?
