Free Crochet Crochet Pattern.
Use this pretty for your coffee cups, or as a facial scrubbie.
Here is another pretty pattern done up in the Canadian Patriotic colors. However, choose any colors you like to clean up your stash. I used two colors for one, and only one color for the next, and both turned out lovely.
As for yarn, I used a #4 cotton, but any yarn will work depending on what you want to use this for. For a coaster and scrubbie I would recommend a cotton. However, I’ve heard others say they prefer acrylic for a scrubbie, so it’s totally up to you. Acrylic is also great if crocheting a wrap or a blanket.
Or, you could try making it in thread to create a doily by piecing together several of these pretty motifs.
There are 8 petals to this motif, so it’ll work perfectly for joining as many motifs as you like. Thus it should work to make a circular doily or a square blanket, whichever you prefer.
