CROCHET PATTERNS (Flower Crochet Pattern #92 Field Bindweed) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project

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.
