I love this pattern. Thank you for posting it. It worked up much bigger than I thought it would.

Craftybegonia, I love the pattern but more than that I love the photo of the picket fence with cosmos!

This would make a pretty ornament for the Christmas Tree. I would use crochet cotton & a smaller hook to make it small enough to hang on the tree

Thank you for your nice comments! They are very encouraging to me.

Sewsew88, if you want the motif smaller, use a smaller hook than the one I suggested. An F hook will diminish the size of the motif.

Yes, Minny, if you make it in one of those yarns that has golden or silver threads running throught hem, it would be nice to hang on a tree. You could add a few dots of white glue at the center and silver or gold glitter.

PortraitsofAnimals, I love cosmos, they are so bright and cheerful!

How pretty. I am teaching two ladies to crochet and I plan on teaching this pattern. I try to inpress on them, how important it is to read patterns. They will be amazed to see that they can make this with the stitches they
already know. Thank you so much for
sharing. Judy
