Dogwood Flowers

The dogwood flowers in my backyard prompted me to create this pretty pattern! I tested a few different versions before coming up with flowers that looked realistic and still worked up quickly.

You can get the printable version of the pattern HERE.

Here are my first prototypes:

This is one of the most relaxing/ meditative crochet patterns I’ve made. The process reminded me of drawing a still life in art class. There was something really soothing about observing these delicate flowers and creating them with yarn!

  1. I have begun to crochet this lovely flower. One question. The petal instructions you say are rows one to ten. When you count the stitches you end up with the correct amount in each row but please note you number them 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 10. Therefore only 9 rows!!
