Here goes a free pattern for a Croco-Flower. It’s quite easy… literally, just a couple of rounds that gives you an interesting 3-D effect. It can be worked in any yarn weight. However, heavier weight yarns like worsted or bulky weights works best to give it a sturdier texture. Even the good ol’ Red Heart Super Saver works fine for this flower. Enjoy it!
