African Flower Obsession

Over the last few months I have developed a small obsession, Africa flowers.
I started by making a few by way of a stash buster. I used a pattern from Simply Crochet magazine but you can find plenty on the internet

They grew and grew

But joining them, well that was another matter, I just couldn't decide,  I joined, then ripped back again and again

  so instead I just kept making other projects, and looking at them every so often

Then I had the daft idea to start another…..

so I made more….

and more….

Eventually I had something approaching 350 individual flowers

Now I have two joined and have begun to join the third

Well I have laid them out at least

And believe it or not I have started planning a fourth. I cannot deny it, I am addicted to African flowers


  1. it is stunning..................mmm should I go for African flower when I have finished my current throw in solid granny sq , oh, and then the blue baby blanket.....we will see

    1. Tricia they are not the fastest make, but they do look gorgeous
