6-Petals Flower crochet pattern in Irish Crochet Style
The following flower pattern is based on an antique Irish crochet motif from Priscilla’s Irish Crochet Book. We're going to use the padding cord again in the central part and also in the petals. Irish crochet require working uniform stitches, so this simple pattern will be a nice and quick way to practise working over the padding cord.
