Crochet Flowers for The BIg Knit

 I have taken part in The Big Knit for quite a few years and the little hats go on top of Innocent Juices drink bottles and when they are sold a percentage of the money goes to Age UK
 This year my Mum wanted to take part so she knitted the little hats and I had the fun of sitting down and making 19 little flowers to decorate the front. I am really pleased with how these turned out and I used a simple little tutorial on YouTube created by The Making Spot.  I can crochet flowers but it was getting the flower the right size, in proportion and a good shape and this tutorial fitted the bill.  I loved making these cheerful little flowers and I can definitely see more uses for them.

Pop over to The Big Knit and see what it is all about.  if you like knitting there are more challenging patterns to knit and there is a cute crochet pattern as well.  It is also possible to donate online as well if you wish to.
Take care all.
