Hi everyone!

I hope you're having a great day! =)

In today's pattern, i'm going to teach you how to make a basic Eight-Petal Flower in three different sizes!

This flower is super easy to make and the best of all is that you don't need a lot of yarn, in fact, you can use all of your leftovers from past projects.

Also, you can play with the different sizes of this project to make a beautiful layered flower =).

I hope that you like the pattern, and please remember that if you have a doubt you can leave a message here or in any of my official social networks, which you can find in the Contact section of the blog.

Have a great week! =)

LAYERED FLOWER
You can use two or three flowers with different sizes to make a layered flower. If you use two different colors, the flower looks even better!

In the example, i'm using a flower with big petals as the base and a flower with small petals on the top.
