Crochet Challenge - Celebrate Spring - Crochet a flower

Week 3 (03-19-14) Challenge: Celebrate the First Day of Spring (March 20, 2014) by crocheting a flower, or make a project that has a flower motif or theme.
Answer: I'd been working on this design of a blue iris, and managed to come up with the ALMOST finished product! Before I publish the (free) pattern, I'll add a stem and leaf and make a couple of tweaks.

  1. That is so impressive! I can't wait to see where you go with this pattern, and I'd be happy to test it if you're interested.
    My dad is very interested in local native plants - now I'm inspired to try and work out crochet versions of some of his favorites.

    1. Thank you! I could always use another pattern tester - I'll contact you when I finish my tweaks! I have always been obsessed with native plants and wanted to include various flowers on an afghan for my mom, hence, my iris pattern. In my search for patterns and inspiration, I came across this project: 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project at You really must visit there first if you decide to go ahead with projects for your dad! The designer did her versions in floss, however, and I wanted to try working in worsted. The iris she did was beautiful but not really the look I wanted so I had to design my own. I'm anxious to see how some of her other designs that do have the look I want, work toward worsted, if I can just downsize and don't have to totally design my own! She has some really unusual and gorgeous flowers from all over!

  2. What an original way to work this challenge! Your iris is so lifelike, well done!

  3. that looks amazing. Great job on creating a pattern. I always admire people that can do that! I, however, am not one. Have a great weekend.

  4. Wow, I missed this post. How absolutely gorgeous. Mine look like made from an amateur compared to yours. That took some doing. Just plain wonderful. The color really stands out. Makes me look forward to what you will be doing next. Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. You're too kind! And nothing you do looks like it's made from an amateur - you do such lovely work! I saw you joined a mand-a-long and after I looked it up to see what a mandala was it took all the willpower I had to not do it to - I just have so many things going on I can't do another LOL
