Crochet African Flowers

This Saturday I'm teaching a class at The Little Knittery on these cute crochet African Flowers (thanks Julie for the photo!).

For these I used Cascade's Cotton Rich DK and an F hook for what I thought gave the best results. I tried a worsted weight but I think the smaller stitches give it a delicate look while the bright colors of Cotton Rich really make them stand out. Here's a flickr group for African Flowers worth browsing with the pattern posted at the bottom.

As I was making the samples for the class my girls kept asking if they could wear them. I don't think they cared how I would make the flowers wearable they just wanted them. I liked the way the flowers looked without the last round of double crochet and thought they would make cute hair clips or even a bracelet. For the clips I put a bobby pin on the back and for the hair-tie/bracelet I tied a hair band to the back. They wanted to wear them to bed but I convinced them while they might be cute they wouldn't be comfortable! Sewn together as a baby blanket though...
