Crochet Pattern: Carnation

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 8th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 10 Comments
While out shopping I’ve noticed that crocheted accessories are all the rage. So, this week’s crochet pattern is for a white and pink tinged carnation. There are so many uses for this project. You could make several and chain or slip stitch them together to create a sweet, spring accent scarf. You could also make two and attach hair bands for your daughter’s pigtails. Sew a piece of felt and a pin back onto the flower to wear on your jacket. Why not whip up a few to dress up some headbands. They are a perfect handmade alternative to bows for gifting too!

This quick project adds a handmade touch that your creative friends are sure to love!
