Addictive Crocheting

It is a beautiful Sunday in New York, and my daughter and I enjoyed the day as she prepared mentally for her first full week back to school.  She is a hard-working 11th grader.  Whenever I have a minute, I grab one of my Modern Flowers and hook a few rounds.  The pattern is so much fun and keeps pulling me back in!  This one is going to be in three colors of a self-striping yarn with some olive green solids and framed in beige.  I am using a K hook to keep it nice and drape-y.

I love this pattern!

Free Pattern Sunday – Eight Pointed Flower


One of my most popular patterns, Eight Pointed Flower started as a 9″ afghan square but then I later added a few rounds to get it to 12.”  There are almost 600 versions in the Ravelry pattern gallery!  Here is my original and then a lovely version by Chitweed:


Goodgrieflucy added a new twist with her version made into a stunning blanket:
