HOPE

I was inspired by my fellow designer, Ramalakshmi Pasumarthy, to design my own crochet flower. I knew it just had to be named "HOPE" 💖

This pattern works well with any yarn or thread with a compatable sized  hook

These are the 4 colours I used in the photo above

Colour (A) = Cream

Colour (B) = Dark Purple

Colour (C) = Light Purple

Colour (D) = White
