Wheel flower crochet pattern in Irish Crochet style
The following pattern is based on an antique Irish crochet motif compiled by Therese de Dillmont in her book, Masterpieces of Irish Crochet Lace. I'll use the crochet cotton Size 10, but it can be done in any gauge of yarn. And of course, you don't need to stick to white colour.
