Someone on reddit did a flower like this and I followed the youtube videos and I like it a lot. It came out REALLY nice. I’m not sure what to call it though, the video name was really bland for such a pretty pattern. I’m also not sure what to do with it. On reddit they said just leave it like this but what good would that be? It’s not a blanket, hat, or other wearable. This was with Lion Brand Mandala Baby Mermaid, and I really, really like the colors. I ended up doing a freehand row of green since that was next in line on the skein. If this had been a 4 yarn I would continue as a blanket. But, I am REALLY tempted to get a 4 yarn in these colors and make this again as a throw. The problem is the later rows don’t expand enough to make the petals lay flat. They kind of perk up a bit which is ok but you’ll see starting with the blue row in particular, you aren’t increasing the petals, it’s just offsetting it. So you’d need a row here and there like the crocodile stitch mermaid tail to increase it out. Now that I get the overall pattern I could totally do that.
I wouldn’t literally make an entire blanket like this, I would do about this same amount of rows in a 4 or 5 yarn and then square it off in a solid color like green with a somewhat simple stitch.
