The first flower

little crochet flowerI have a project in mind that will require some crochet flowers (using up leftover yarn from the well-travelled blanket).In this month’s Simply Crochet magazine for a throw with five-petalled flowers inside squares so I worked the flower part of the pattern using some scrap yarn and it came out like this!  I am so delighted!  I like it so much that I have attached it to my scissors in the hope that it will stop them falling to the bottom of the yarn bin.To make the flower, I had to learn a new technique – the ‘magic ring‘.  I love the way that the ring pulls closed completely so that there is no hole in the middle of the flower.
