Crochet Appliqué Flower

This pattern was one of the first patterns I published when I started designing knit and crochet patterns. I am going in a new direction for my shop and want to offer this pattern, along with some of my other smaller appliqué  patterns for free on my blog.

These little flowers are great added to beanies, shirts, onesies, tote bags, really there are so many ways you can use this pattern. When my daughter was little I made a ton of these and added to little hair clips.
