African Flower Crochet Tutorial

African flowers are a lovely hexagonal version of a granny square using simple crochet stitches - chain, double crochet and treble - to produce a really pretty effect.

They can be used for all sorts of things from blankets, mats and shawls to more elaborate things like toys and bags.

Below is a bag I made using 11 African Flower motifs which I crocheted together and added covered hoops and crochet handle. I was really pleased with the result.

A few people have asked for a tutorial on how to make the African Flowers so I've put together a video which I hope you enjoy. https://youtu.be/x66KXt_1h3w
