Following on from the success of her Lily Pond CAL (Crochet-Along), designer Jane Crowfoot has created a stunning crochet pattern for her new CAL, Frida’s Flowers. Inspired by traditional Mexican folk art and Frida Kahlo’s colourful embroidered dresses, Jane has created a fresh new floral design for her new project.
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.
Although the CAL has now finished, the pattern is available to download for free from Stylecraft CAL.
Frida’s Flowers is an ideal opportunity for crocheters to improve their skills and is not intended for complete beginners.
The official CAL will be created in Stylecraft Classique Cotton yarn and this pack contains alternative shades in Stylecraft Special DK. 16 x 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK yarn are included in the following shades

Love this company and their products!
I really liked how the yarn came in it’s own bag. Very pretty colors.
Nice yarn. There were no instructions. I think I will make with my own choice of yarn and color,
I love this kit! The yarn is soft, love all the colors. Great service!
