I was in the mood to make flowers- only I didn’t want to make just any flower. I wanted to crochet a flower that I have never seen crocheted before.
The Water Lily looks a lot like the Water Lotus, but when you really research you will see the difference between the two easily. I decided on designing a Water Lily because the lilies grow in a variety of colors… allowing my color options to be endless.
