Beautiful African Flowers Crochet Pattern Ideas

Not all the flowers are the same. This original and detailed colorful African flower crochet motif will meet expectations of a demanding pattern seeker. The flower consists actually of two flowers: one in the center and another one which creates the petals.

The flower is flat so the work can be of any use, starting with napkins and ending with a table cloth or a blanket. You can also decide to make the work in other than square shape, for example a hexagon. African flower crochet motif gives a lot of room for experiments – if you choose a light color background, the colors will pop. If on the other hand you pick colors that create the contrast, the pattern will look more juicy. Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
