This floating flower was born on a night after my brain had already gone to sleep. I’m sure you know the feeling, you get so tired that you can’t think straight anymore, but you aren’t ready to call it a day… yet. I remember I had so much work to do that night, but I didn’t want to do it, and going to sleep wasn’t an option. I mean, how do you sleep with so much stuff on your mind?
So I found my hook and yarn and started playing around hoping to do something productive to ease my mind. And I’m glad I crocheted, because I love this flower. I love how it naturally curls, making it look like the top layer floats on the bottom. You can also push the flower flat if desired.
The flower is crocheted in a medium weight yarn using a G crochet hook. That creates a thicker fabric so the flower maintains its shape better. You could also stiffen it slightly using a fabric stiffener.
The adorable flower measures about 3.5″ across, making it great for headbands, hats or anything else you have in mind. I crocheted mine in a solid color, but you could just as well crochet it in two or more colors.
