Sunday Flower

I came up with this pattern on a Sunday, so that’s where the pattern name comes from. Crocheting flowers is a pretty good thing to do on Sundays 🙂
The flower has a compact design, so it won’t loose the shape so easy. It works perfect as decoration on another crochet piece or for example for making a garland.

The yarn used in this pattern was sponsored by Järbo Garn .
