CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #31 Pink Boronia) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

Introduction

365 Flower Bouquet Project – PATTERN DIRECTORY,  the landing page of my blog contains links to all the flower crochet patterns I've designed so far.

If you are familiar with Ravelry and you’d like to have a go at my patterns, join us at 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet on Ravelry.

1st of July … a new month is starting with the pattern for a pink flower. I just love Louise’s photo and have decided to design it next, even though I don’t know the name of this little pink flower. Maybe you can help! If you know what flower this is, send me a comment!

(Edited 2nd of July) Ann recognised the plant as Boronia! Thank you very much, Ann! After further investigation I've learned that Boronias are evergreen shrubs growing mainly in woodlands and forests in Australia. The variety in the photo is a Boronia fraseri. This plant grows about 1.5m tall and its 4 petal flowers are quite large, up to 24mm wide. It is not a little pink flower after all…

Inspiration

Pink Flower Crochet Pattern

INSTRUCTIONS:

Yarn: crochet cotton colour A= dark multi pink, tapestry cotton colour B=pink; cotton sewing thread C= yellow

Crochet hook: 2.5mm

Details of components:

–         Dark pink centre; lots of stamens, for which I’ve decided to make French knots

–         4 pink petals with a dark pink line running longitudinally.

Centre

Start: using A, make 3ch, join with sl st, 1ch, continue work in round

R1: 6sc in ring, join with sl st, 1ch

R2: working only on the front loops, make 6sc. Finish off. 

Petals

Using colour A and hook 1.75mm, working on the back loops of the centre piece of the flower:

R1: make 11ch, turn and make 10sc, change to B, make 1sl st in the centre, 1ch

R2: 1sc, 1hdc, 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 2hdc, 2sc, 1sl st, 1ch, 1sl st, 2sc, 2hdc, 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 1hdc, 1sc, 1sl st in the centre, change to A and make 1sl st n the direction of previous petal (if there is any petal done yet)

Turn work on RS and repeat R1-R2 in order to make the 4 petals. Finish off A and B.  

Thread a needle with colour C and make French knots on top edge of the centre of the flower. You could also make a stigma and position it right in the centre.

There it is! The Pink Boronia Crochet Pattern is ready!
