For years I've been looking for the perfect flower motif, that would be altogether pretty AND easy to crochet. Finally, I found one in a vintage stitch dictionnary this winter. Okay, it wasn't perfect but after fixing some petals that just didn't look right, ... I had the perfect flowers !! I first made a hat using this stitch, but quickly needed to turn it into a pretty cardigan... I've now made 3 so far (+ the doll versions :-P).




It was my niece's birthday, so she was the first to get one, made it with 2 strands of baby blue thrifted yarn. And made a matching tiny cardigan for her doll :-)


I then made 2 more, with the lovely "Eco +" yarn by Cascade yarns: you gotta love those pretty colors, and the yarn was surprisingly softer than I thought ! I only kept 4 buttons, and my daughters love those !! I really enjoyed making them too, top down + all in one piece is def. my favorite construction method !! Yay for crochet :-D

Cute! They look great with both the 8 buttons and the 4 buttons.

Thanks ! I have a plan to make one for myself, but the daisy motif will be placed differently (wouldn't work with that tight section around my chest ! :-P)

Glad you like it :-)
