Free Crochet Pattern | Crochet Flower Power
To celebrate 'Dia Consciência Negra' aka Black Awarness Day on the 20th November, I have created a new free crochet pattern. This multicoloured POWER crochet flower represents the unity of any race through the mix of three different colours & the belief of equality created with the simple formations of knots from the crochet hook which symbolise the loving gesture of a hug. This colourful flower is both simple & easy to make & is an ideal project for your scrap yarn. Read more.
Over the weekend I took part in the 'Dia de Consciêncai Negra' event at the Bangalô Art House here in Santos. As part of the event I made 120 of my Crochet Flower Power flowers to give away as free gifts to everyone who took part in our event. I added the poem,
A flower for Love,
a flower against Pain,
a flower against RACISM.
As always I have made a step by step photo tutorial below plus a Youtube tutorial video!
