Notes

Please read the blog that goes with this project, on turtleloom.com!

This project is hopefully the first of many in support of the Handspun Hope ministry which fights women poverty in Rwanda.

As of this writing, Handspun Hope is the only yarn producer certified by the Fair Trade Federation.

Use any worsted weight yarn of your choice for the flower petals. Consider red, pink, white, or yellow.

To make the table accent …

Weave:
(4) green hexagons for the leaves
(1) yellow hexagon for the center of the flower
(6) red hexagons for the flower petals.

Use the diagram to assemble the flower first. If you would like help with that, watch this video.

Assemble three hexagons for the big leave. Attach the leaves as shown to the flower.

Block as desired.
