Water lily Crochet Flower Pattern

WATER LILY FLOWER PATTERN

© Shai Urbano 2018

INTRODUCTION

Here you will find the pattern/ instructions on how to crochet a water lily flower. I did my best to make it as close as the real flower as possible. This pattern works in the round and make use of the front and back loops. You can make a bigger flower by using a bigger thread. In the photos, I used Monaco crochet cotton thread. (Close to Aunt Lydia’s #10) This is my personal pattern that I use for my crochet flower bookmarks. You can use it as a decoration, embellishment for jewelries, applique and many more.
