This pattern is for a quick little flower motif that was originally used for a lamp cover in an 1861 French magazine, La Mode Illustrée. I think it would be lovely as a floral shawl or scarf—or, in worsted weight, an afghan. I have tons of photos in the pattern to help you make this 3-Round flower, and how to join the flowers as you go (you could sew them together after you make them if you prefer).

I also show how I made it into a pendant for a necklace.

While it would be nice made in one colour, I would love to see something made with either self-striping yarn or with flowers made in different colours. I hope that if you make something using this motif, you will share photos on my Facebook page, West Coast: Super, Natural, or link to the design on Ravelry: “Asphodel Meadows.”

Please show your appreciation for this design by putting it in your Favourites. I spend many hours researching, reworking and rewriting these antique patterns, and like most people I enjoy knowing that my effort is appreciated :)
