CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #55 Hypericum Flower) – 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 crochet patterns, join us at 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet on Ravelry.

Another flower from my garden is Hypericum. This shrub is quite a popular choice when you need an undemanding plant which can cheer up a dull spot with its bright yellow flowers for the whole summer.

Today, I’m going to perform an experiment. I intend to use parts of the real flower such as stamens and stalk and put it all back together with the crochet stigma and petals. I know that the petals last very little after you cut the flower, but have no idea how long will the stamens last. And the stamens are the most beautiful part of the flower! So, I’d like to keep them.

Conclusion

This is it!  The Crochet Hypericum Flower is ready!  I’m very curious to see how long the sepals will last. I’ll let you know, anyway.

    I tried several times to download the app and was sent to a site that had something to do with hotels.

      Hi Lindsey,

      the app you’re talking about is not part of my stuff. It’s a Google Adsense ad. I don’t have any downloadables on my blog posts, unless you buy a pattern from the store.

  2. Kayla says:

    I am curious about using the actual sepals from the actual flower rather than making it out of some thread or wiring. Is there something we can do that will be for sure to last a long period of time that would maybe work just as well. I really loved the idea and the pictures, but I don’t want to make this and give it away if it won’t look the same after a month or two goes by. If you can let me know I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
