CROCHET PATTERNS (Crochet Flower Pattern #93 Water Avens) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project

Water Avens crochet flower

Another wildflower native to Ireland is the Water Avens (Geum rivale). This perennial flowering plant also known as water flower and Indian chocolate grows in bogs and meadows and flowers between April to September. It also grows in Central Asia and North America.

The stems carry 3-7 flowers, nodding bell-shaped, dusty pink in colour with purple-brown stems and calyx. They become erect as the fruit ripens. The seeds bear tiny hooks which makes it easy to get attached to people clothing and animal fur, therefore dispersing them easily.

For the stamens I made a small pom-pom by wrapping colour C on two fingers 25 times. Pull the loops off your fingers and tie together, then cut the loops at the other end.

AssemblyWater Avens assembly

Push the petals inside the calyx and secure them together.

Insert the stamens inside the bell and stitch at bottom of flower.
