Stylecraft Frida’s Flowers CAL Pack – Classique Cotton
Jane Crowfoot has created a stunning crochet pattern inspired by traditional Mexican folk art and Frida Kahlo’s colourful embroidered dresses, and has created a fresh new floral design for her this gorgeous blanket.
The shades chosen reflect the traditional crewel work of Mexico which often features bold, bright colours on a dark background – and of course, Frida was known for her colourful floral headwear, so there are lots of flowers in the design. An ideal opportunity for crocheters to improve their skills and not intended for complete beginners.
