I saw, I pinned, I made!

I saw this on Pinterest and just had to pin it!  I needed a little something for a gift, so I thought I would give the pattern a shot.

The pattern is adapted from an 1893 circle motif pattern.  Very simple!  I did make some adjustments to the pattern of course…the middle one is exactly the same as the directions.

On the littlest one I only did three rows, on the largest one I added a row to the pattern.

The yarn I used was Cream and Sugar cotton yarn….it is actually a pretty purple color. Not sure what was going on with the camera and/or lighting, but they are definitely not blue!

Hi Ellen! I like your circle pattern so much!I recently started crocheting and love making flowers! What size of crochet hook did you use?

Boy, do I wish I could crochet, I'd be making all kinds of flowers and doilies! I don't blame you for wanting to make these-they're REALLY pretty!

And for what it's worth, most cameras have a problem getting blues and purples right. I don't know if a special lens is required or what.
