The start of a new project is always exciting, and that is also true for In Bloom, a lovely designed by Johanna Lindahl from Mijo Crochet. In this first part of the project we are making the central flower. In the first few rounds the flower is still a bit wonky, but as it grows it starts to lay flat.
