LARGE 8 PETAL FLOWER PATTERN


12 months ago since l made the camper blanket..wow!
and
I keep being asked for the complete Noo Noo blanket pattern and how too make it post, so here it is from

Post from February 2011
Noo noo needs a blanket for the bed and l did promise months ago to make one so my first bed cover is going to be for our beloved camper Noo noo...
this is the flower l am going to use, but still working on the colour choice
 
 simple solid center
 
 
 
 
 
I used a join as you go method during the the 5th round to join the flowers together
I also used TWO DIFFERENT Round 2's for the Noo Noo blanket
 

12 PETAL FLOWER
 An 8 PETAL FLOWER...made in 4 rounds not five
MAIL ME FOR THE 8PETAL PATTERN

FLOWER DETAILS...
Using an 6mm hook and two strands sometimes blended DK acrylic 
 8" diameter and l need to make it 40" wide x 54" long....perfect to go over the seat when not up as a bed
Making 5 x 7 flower = 32 complete flowers.....a nice size to do
and l'm keeping the wavy edge
This is the camper so do l stay with the green and cream and a splash of orange or go for the rainbow of colour in the flags?...
All l need to do now is a sample in the right colours!
l'll be back

 
 
FIRST 7 MOTIF'S.
next round will be in the greens
loving it so far and Phil was pleased l was making NooNoo a blanket at last too!
off to eat dinner and then start the green round

  9. I must be blind because I do not see a pattern telling me how to make this beautiful flower and turn it into an afghan. I hope you can help me. I really don't see it other than the size of the hook and that you used 2 pieces of yarn while crocheting. Please give me a little direction. Thank you,
