Flower Power

See Floral for links to the origins of the non crochet floral images

Hello!  Over the years, I have seen this pretty pattern appear in my Pinterest feed many times and always thought it would make a gorgeous blanket.  I absolutely love making this square, it is fun to be working with so many different colours and to be mixing cotton and bamboo yarns to reach the desired effect. You definitely want to stroll over to Instagram and take a look at the gorgeous projects featuring this square by Cornel and Elsbeth and also read Cornel's posting on the HelloHart blog. 

Hook size: 4mm. These stunning squares are about 25cm x 25cm unblocked in size each! 
Patten: The pattern was published in the magazine Para Ti - guia de puntos but I have no idea which edition. Please feel free to enlighten me!

It is a very busy time here in the Pigtails Palace and I am slightly overwhelmed by the volume of activities I am faced with on a daily basis (including working full time!) I will also be blogging about the progress in hunting down beautiful pieces for the Girl Teen's room soon, show some pictures of what the interesting Doha Downtown area looks like, finally blog about the African Inspired Blanket (hijacked by the Dude Teen) and so forth!

Have a great week, we are celebrating Qatar National day this week and from what I can see, it certainly is a massive event here every year. Until next time, cheers!

  11. Hi Magda,
    I have nominated you for a "Peace & Harmony" blogging award for bringing "harmony & peace, love & beauty and positivity to the world". I love the way you share about the places you visit, the people who live there, the customs and food etc. In that way it teaches us about each other and through education, fosters understanding and peace. You share beauty in your photographs, your blog and through your crochet. I do hope you will accept this award. More information is on my blog: http://lupeyloops.blogspot.com.au/2014/12/harmony-peace-award.html
    Thank you for continuing to inspire me with beauty and harmony on your blog.
    Cheers, Jodie

  12. Thank you everyone, this is definitely the most enjoyable, addictive pattern I have ever hooked. i really love monochrome palettes with regard to home and wardrobe, but hooking in these colours is just such a rewarding experience.
