Spring Pastel Flower
I've always wanted to design my own pattern and have the skills of designing and writing patterns. But I've always hesitated about it. Once the" The crochet hook up" page by @theloopystitch has announced about the campaign of 3365daysofcrochet flowers, and that anyone who crochet can design his/her own flower, a dear friend sent me the post and at that moment I took the decision of designing and started with this flower!
