Pansy Crochet Pattern
I've chosen a Pansy for today's crochet flower pattern. Its latin name is Viola Tricolor. Pansies are known as cool weather flowers, they have a heart shape with overlapping petals in bright colours. My pansies this year are a yellow & black variety, quite big in size. It was raining today when I took this photo, you could say she's a bit under the weather …
