For my first post I am sharing a basic flower pattern that can be used to decorate many different things. It would look terrific on a beanie, or a scarf or add a pin to the back and pin it on a shawl or coat.

Flowers are a perfect touch for many projects. This is an easy, basic one that works on many different things. #crochetzone #crochet #flower #freepattern
