I spent a few hours trying some patterns I saved on my Kobo Arc and in my Crochet Binder – ones I have wanted to crochet because they were so very lovely – all flowers that I could make into pretty brooches…
I should probably revise that…
I have WASTED a few hours trying some patterns…
I tried, then tried again, and again…
Two of the patterns have been deleted from my Crochet Bucket List – not because I figured them out and have something beautiful to share but because in frustration I ripped out all the progress I had made and then I hit “delete“…a third pattern was ripped from my crochet binder and shredded in the shredder…
…for the fourth I was unwilling to admit complete defeat and in desperation, I sent an email to the Designer asking for assistance.
It felt like such a wasted day –
I’m not one to give-up easily…
Just like when I start a book…even when I don’t particularly enjoy the story – I feel I must finish reading it –
As I sat there stewing over this…I remembered a pattern I had saved…and scrolled in my Arc for it.
The pattern is written by Wind Rose Fiber Studio. I have a few saved from this blog –

So simple and so pretty!
Quick and easy projects – the pattern was written in a simple and easy to understand manner – and it was complete. I had no questions – and if I had – she had graciously provided video links for assistance.
Give this one a go – a super easy embellishment or brooch –
As I felt like I was on a roll – I decided to proceed to the second flower she had that was on my Crochet Bucket List –

Another successful project!
This pattern was also very easy to follow – and a video was available for those that prefer video crochet learning –
Both patterns were written in US Crochet terms. I used a 4.00 mm crochet hook and Bernat Handicrafter Cotton (worsted weight yarn). I love how they turned out! Both of these have been converted into brooches.
