Beautiful pattern by Leticia Lebron of Flawless Crochet Flowers. This arrangement was part of a summer CAL for 2017.
What is a CAL? Crochet-Along. Once upon a time that brought up images of women sitting around in circles talking about their lives while creating something together. Now we have social media and the current CALs bring together people from all over the world to create a pattern in their image. As a beginner, I would highly recommend joining one. It gives you the opportunity to try something with a group of people that you can turn to with anything from a question about hooks to gripes about how difficult it is. I learned a lot, but that is a topic for another today.
Today it is the Royal Poinciana Flamboyant. Delonix regia, is a flowering plant in the bean family. It is aptly grouped with other trees known as the “flame trees”. Leticia has done a wonderful job of capturing the likeness of the flower, pod, and leaf.
I used Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet 10 Thread in red and white with a 1.9 crochet hook.
You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or through Etsy. I highly recommend joining her Facebook group for information on her next patterns, contests and CALs. Joining the CAL was well worth it.
