Jane Crowfoot has created a stunning crochet pattern inspired by traditional Mexican folk art and Frida Kahlo’s colourful embroidered dresses, and has created a fresh new floral design for her this gorgeous blanket.
The shades chosen reflect the traditional crewel work of Mexico which often features bold, bright colours on a dark background – and of course, Frida was known for her colourful floral headwear, so there are lots of flowers in the design. An ideal opportunity for crocheters to improve their skills and not intended for complete beginners.

I'm glad I got this yarn pack to make Fridas Flower s. I tried pricing the yarn separately and sourcing locally but thic company makes it easy and worthwhile to buy the kit. No regrets!
Great as always great prices points and discount codes makes every thing more tempting thanks
Wonderful. Even though the product came from the U.K. the shipping was fast and timely. The yarn is beautiful and I can hardly wait to start my project
It arrived in two separate packages over two days. I was initially confused, but I now have everything and it is crocheting beautifully.
I just about have the blanket finished and everyone that sees me working on it loves it. The pattern is interesting but still easy to follow and the colors of the yarn are just gorgeous. I would definitely recommend this kit.
