Crochet flower pattern

From time to time I like to post ‘mini’ patterns over on my Instagram page and thought it’d be a good idea to start posting them on here as well! There’s only so much info I can fit on an ig post, so by putting the patterns on my blog, I can expand on the original post and include additional details and photos that I hope will be helpful! πŸ™‚

Let’s start with these flowers! As you might be able to tell, I love making them! They’re simple to make and take no time at all.

I was inspired to make these after designing my Vintage Rainbow Mandala & Square! You’ll probably notice the similarities!
