Crochet lion's foot flower stitch
On YouTube I found this helpful crochet tutorial on Oana's crochet channel:
I was intrigued by the idea that you need to crochet in a right direction for the first row which is quite unusual! The whole flower pattern is made by working only 3 rows. As a result you will have a long flower ribbon which could be used as a border to an existing project (blanket, top, etc).
On the other hand, you can work several of these flower ribbons and join them as you work. This results in a larger 'fabric' and can be used to construct clothing and blankets.
How this works is all shown in the video.
I felt very inspired and decided to give it a go. So I started work on a Flower crochet Shawl, using some yarn I recently bought at Wolle Roedel in Germany.
The yarn is called Rico Creative Sport Print DK. 50 g = 145 m, suggested needle size 4.5 - 5.5mm.
It's a mix of 50% cotton and 50% Acrylic which makes it super soft and squishy!
You can also order it online: Rico Creative Sport Print dk 50g (of course you might also find it at your own retailer!)
Here you can see my work in progress. I love the subtle changes of colour! You can see I'm using a 4mm hook which feels right to me as I crochet fairly loosely.
I am making a long scarf, but it would be really easy to join it to make a lovely cowl! I'm still working on it, one section at a time. I will let you see it when it is finished!
I wonder what you think of it, please let me know and leave me a comment below!
Hope you enjoyed this project!
