I love this flower.  It is very balanced and very ‘happy’ looking.
I used the yarn recommended, Red Heart Soft Yarn and a 5.50 mm hook and the flower did not work out for me.  I think my tension was too relaxed.

I am not as happy with my flower as the ones in Mimi’s image (but I still love them!) – I am going to make some more in different types of yarn, until I get them exactly right!
Here is the flower using the 4.50 mm hook.

 

Mimi also had instructions for a Groovy flower at the bottom of the Colourful Yarn flower post.

I think they may brighten up a certain someone’s day 🙂
