Hi -

I need some flower power!

I'm looking for very specific crochet flower patterns.  I need the flowers to be about palm-sized, flat, and not have much (if any) open work. Solid little flat flowers, basically. I've looked through the internet, and I've found a couple good ones. Most have roundy petals so I'm now also searching particularly for a flower with pointy petals instead of roundy ones.

I also cannot find a pansy pattern that I can make work. It's like the pansy is my personal crochet Holy Grail... Whenever I make one it turns out all bunchy, despite my close attention to the pattern.

If you have any suggestions or info, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks!!

Thanks Wondergirl - I did find this site in my searches and it had a couple of things I could use, but many of the flowers there are poufy and roundy instead of flat and pointy.

Can't you just make your own pattern?

thanks everybody! i will now attempt to make flowers. i'll keep you posted on my progress (if i make any...).  in answer to a previous suggestion, i am, alas, not so talented yet that i can make up my own patterns for flowers. scarves, yes. flowers, no.  i tried a made-up flower pattern and i ended up with a lumpy puddle of yarn.
