Do you ever get the urge to crochet a project just for its own sake or simply to use as a decoration, without the end product needing to have some defined function? The Happy Flower is such a design, the joy of it is in the making of a whimsical decoration to brighten up a room when it’s finished, but (foremost??) having a relaxing, unhurried and unforced fun time as you are making this happy little crocheted ditty. All that said, this project can also be useful. You can use it as a bookmark or placeholder (ideal for a large cookbook or album) or as an applique, for example on a curtain or tablecloth. A ink to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
