African flowers

This is a little crochet project I started a while ago and have just come back to.  It's called African Flowers - I'm not sure of the origin of the pattern but there is a flickr group here.   I like to have something easy to pick up for the last hour of the day, which I don't have to spend half and hour working out where I was and remembering the pattern.  I have a box of wool from which I randomly pick colours.  I don't usually do anything this bright or uncoordinated by I'm loving this.   Not sure what it will be - probably a blanket but at 2 or 3 a night, it's going to be a while before I get to show you the finished article!

Why not pop over to the flickr group.   There are some beautiful colour combinations and I think the instructions are there somewhere.


  1. They are pretty! Lovely colours! I've tried crochet before but all my squares ended up as different shapes lol!

  2. They are so pretty! I love hexagon shapes they make too.
