A couple of weeks ago, I told you about the Happy Flower Project, a way to use crochet to spread a little happiness.
Today I want to share with you a flower design that you could use for this project that is easy and fast – and it includes a video tutorial!
You can use any size yarn with an appropriate hook. I chose to make this one with Lion Brand Yarn Feels Like Butta that I had left over from some baby blankets.
You can also find this flower (and a few more!) gracing my fall wreath. I haven’t designed a lot of flowers, but I forsee more in my future, especially as spring rolls around again!
What You’ll Need
Yarn: Any weight yarn in three colors (I used Lion Brand Yarn Feels Like Butta)
Hook: Any appropriate hook for the yarn (check the ball band). I used a size H (5.00mm)
Notions: Yarn Needle, scissors

I hope you’ll use your favorite craft to spread a little happiness around. My kids love finding the painted rocks at the park and this is our way of spreading cheer in much the same way.
