Crochet Flowers – Three colors

Flower crochet Tutorial

Crochet flowers are fun to make, quite easy and colorful.

As I knit, I play with colors. Each color has it’s feeling, energy, tells a story. I can choose to combine them in an instinctive way, just choosing the color I feel at this exact moment. Or I can choose color according to a preset understanding of color harmony.

What I have found with experience is that choosing color is a dialogue between myself and the essence of the color. No matter what combination of colors I choose to work with, the end result will always be surprising, unforeseen. And this is what I so much enjoy in the process, unveiling of my presence in making color choices and letting go of the end result. A creative journey…

There are many many different flower crochet tutorials on the internet, in Pinterset,and in books. I choose to share with you flowers I have knitted and enjoyed doing so.

This flower is inspired from the book : “granny folies a crocheter” from Cecile Franconie. A book I highly recommend for inspiration.
