It is week 3 of the Scheepjes CAL 2014 and this week we have a granny with a ‘poker flower’. When I saw the design it immediately reminded me of the Kniphofia, or as it is sometimes called, the Red Hot Poker plant. The Poker plant is not a succulent, but I think it fits here none the less. I love the Kniphofia and think it’s a great plant. I love the colors, it gives a beautiful accent to any border and it’s a low maintenance plant.
Anyway, getting back to the crocheting. As usual the pattern can be found on Wink’s site A Creative Being. I though the pattern was easy this week. Make sure you pay attention to do the corners right, but other than that, you should be okay. At this point it is clear to me that the blanket we are making is going to have a LOT of double crochets 🙂
