Crochet Pattern: Frilled Parasol Appliqué

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
For some unexplainable reason, I’ve always adored umbrellas and parasols. When I was little, I received a child-sized blue umbrella complete with frills. I couldn’t wait for rainy day after that. Today I find it very interesting when going out in the rain the many styles and colors of umbrellas you will see. This interest inspired this weeks pattern. It’s basic and fun to make. Make sure and tell me what you will do with yours! Parasol
