The pansy bouquet pattern is the winner for August. I thought the place mat would do better because I had the special yarn for it but it only got 4 votes.
Each pansy consists of a flower, five calyx petals, two short leaves and two long leaves. The crochet directions seem easy but the finishing directions are somewhat short so I may be winging it on that part. I think I'm only going to do one pansy to start with and see how that goes.
Next week I'll tell you about my next big project!
I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns. I'm a member of Crochet Twin Cities, the local Crochet Guild.
