“Wicked” crochet flower

27Nov13

Thought I’d take you on a trip down memory lane.  This is a blog post from two and a half years ago, with a couple of updates:

—————————

For my birthday I went with my husband and family to see the musical production Wicked.  It was fantastic.  I love musicals and this one was especially good. I LOVED it!

But before we left I had wardrobe dilehma .  My wardrobe, consisting of mostly black (to help hide all those lumps and bumps), was so drab 😦  My sister saw this lovely crochet flower necklace from twoandsix and suggested I make one. So that’s what I did.

Of course it had to be green to match the wicked (or not so wicked 😉 ) witch, Elphaba.  Without a pattern to follow and only the picture from twoandsix, there was a little bit of fiddling and undoing and redoing.  This is how it turned out and I think it worked out quite well.

I would definitely use better quality wool so that the stitches are more visible and not hidden in the fuzz of acrylic wool.  And to stop the petals curling up, like the original flower from twoandsix, I think I should have used a looser stitch.  I always do things tightly.  I must get better at that!

I’ve spent some time this morning writing up the pattern and here it is:

This is the first time I’ve written a pattern so hopefully it makes sense.  Please give it a go and let me know if it works out.  Remember, the stitches are Australian so you may need to convert them to US if that is what you are used to.

Good luck and have a “wicked” crocheting time 🙂
