Valentines Flowers

It’s been a bit quiet here, I’ve been working through some things in the background. I can recomend not getting 2 concussions within a few days of each other! The first month of the new year has just flown by, and we are quickly approaching Valentines day. This year for valentines day I have compiled top 12 favourite ever-lasting flower patterns to gift to your valentine. I have also added in some cacti patterns for those who love cacti. I have my own collection of cacti and indoor plants I absolutley love!

If you prefer something more practical to gift you can look at my previous valentines and flower themed posts: Rose Bookmark, Heart Bookmark or the Crochet Rose Necklace!

Long Stem Rose – Natagor Finlayson

I like this pattern from Natagor Finlayson. It is not in english but if you are at an intermediate to advances level you should be able to follow along.

Lilly – Marielos Castillo

This pattern again is for those who would prefer reading a chart. This pattern was found on pintrest, and I like how the lilly is very simple to make, but makes a statement at the same time. There are less pieces that go into a lilly, which makes it a quicker project for those looking for a last minute gift.
