I have some activity days coming up in June at school and I am going to run an accessories workshop. We shall be making different types of corsages, bag charms etc. Crochet might be a bit much with 25 students but I have been going back over how to make these lovely flowers in the evening as part of my thinking for the workshop. I have been too busy to get the sewing machine out and too tired as well. Picking up a bit of wool and a hook is very spontaneous and portable.
The above is a conventional flower which can be found on the Internet, but I found that if a add another row or two I can get it to crinkle up and gain a different shape. Swapping the colours for the rows also adds to it. I am still trying to expand my skills and this may be nothing new but it was a bit of a landmark for me. For once I was able to decide what the flower looked like rather than keeping my fingers crossed that it might look like the picture in the book!
I am working on another style but more on that another time.
Is is possible to create other types of flowers via crochet?
I have found some help on Youtube but was not sure if I could be looking somewhere else.
