Flowers off my hook !!!!

Exactly one month ago I started this flowery project ….

Today, I can show you the simple idea I came out with : a Starburst Flowers Centrepiece !!!

Wanna look?

Please, you are really welcome …



…. some flowery details…





Are you interested in some technical data?

I was working with a 3,5mm hook.
The cottons used are : Catania 100% cotton for the petals ; Sirdar FLIRT double knitting black (SH 226 LOT 91016) for the centres and Sirdar FLIRT double knitting beige (SH 222 LOT 10308) for the outer round; DALLA ROSA 100% cotone perlato (made in Italy!) in white (bagno 117) for the round around the black circle!
The pattern for the STARBURST FLOWER was found on the book "150 Knit & Crochet Motifs" by Heather Lodinsky.
The final measurements of the centrepiece are : 45cm for each side and 41cm in width (or depth?).

Sunday afternoon, I crochet a little black gift for my mum (she is coming to visit us next Sunday!!!)…







This is a lace headband, whose pattern was found on the same Japanese crochet book I was using for the scarf/shawlette pattern (soon a new post about that little beauty !!!!) !!!
