Jar Jacket Pattern

A few days ago I volunteered to test a Frilly Pansy pattern for designer lin Wibisono.

This is such a clever, pretty flower - perfect for embellishing just about anything!!

I made two (with Mirage 4ply Acrylic and a 3.50mm hook) to decorate a corrugated gift box:

crochet flowers

I made another two using Raeesah Cotton Soft DK and a 4.00mm hook to decorate some jar jackets I had made:



The pattern for the flowers can be found on lin's blog CROCHET ROCKSTAR
