I should really be getting on with my work-in-progress things (baby granny stripe, hexagons, oh well...!) but have been totally inspired to start making some of these gorgeous little flowers!
First saw them on Attic 24 (where else?) and since then they've popped up everywhere!
They're from a Japanese book called Motif Book Vol 4 (I've linked to the etsy seller when Lucy in the Attic got hers) and it's been translated into French on this blog here where there are also crochet diagrams if you are able to reach such things, see:
Tuto réalisation d’une fleur (one flower)
Tuto assemblage des fleurs (assembling two flowers (join as you go))
Ou les 2 tutos en version pdf (a pdf (adobe reader file) which seems to work better than the other links)
Anyway I'm babbling, this is all on Attic 24 - go there! All I really want to do is say "hey look, I managed to make one too, yay!!!"
I've make a few more since, but unlike our lovely Lucy I have no idea what I'm going to do with them! Will I make a scarf, will I hang them up somewhere? Who knows! I certainly don't!
The yarns Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (tis lovely lovely stuff) and I think I got it from Hejhog which is a lovely website indeed :-)
