i didn't use a pattern. i never do. i'm not patient enough! so i make it up along the way. sorry! i know that when i was crocheting, i kept thinking leaf, leaf, leaf....
i used coated copper wire. 26gauge for the petals because i wanted it to be stiffer to retain its shape. the blue wire is 28guage, which is what i usually crochet with. much easier on these arthritic hands!
the lily is about 3.5 - 4 inches across.
thank you all for your comments. i really appreciate it. so much so, that i promise NOT to be a lurker anymore.
i wanted to post some more stuff that i've made, but our pc got the blue screen of death and is awaiting surgery to remove all needed and wanted files.
