Field Bindweed crochet flower
The last crochet pattern of month is inspired by another wildflower of Ireland. I’ve chosen the Field Bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis), a species of Morning Glory native to Europe and Asia. You can find it on roadsides and grassland. It is pretty invasive producing dense mats and reducing crop yields. It grows fast and it’s quite hard to eradicate.
The Field Bindweed is a creeping perennial bearing pale pink to white flowers with a delicate scent and blooms in the summertime. The flowers are trumpet-shaped and have five distinctive radial lines from the edge to the yellow centre.

R3: 10sc, join with sl st. Change to colour A, make 1ch. Fasten off C.
R4: ((1sc, 1sc), 1sc) x 5 = 15sc, join with sl st, 1ch

R14: (4sc, (1dc, 1dc), 4sc) x 5 = 50sts, join with sl st, 1ch
R15: (2sc, 2hdc, (2dc), (2dc), 2hdc, 2sc) x 5 = 60sts, join with sl st. Fasten off A.
Start: using 1mm hook and colour D, *make 8ch, make a small clone’s knot and continue with 7 sl st. Repeat from * 4 times = 4 stamens. Fasten off D.
Roll the stamens and secure them together. Colour the knots with a purple marker.
Insert the stamens group inside the funnel and stitch at bottom of flower.
At the last minute I decided to make some veins, to identify the shape of the 5 petals. I made backstitch in colour E running from the top edge to the yellow centre.
This is it! The flower crochet pattern is ready!
