So, I've been working on this beaded scarf, (it's gonna be gorgeous!) but it's taking awhile and I totally have croch-ADD, so I meandered off and made up this really cute, stash-busting flower. I hope you like it! I think it looks just as good in a solid color as it does multi-color, and you can add a button or other bauble to really make it stand out.
10-Petal Popcorn Flower
ww yarn, J hook (I crochet super tight, so if you don't want a gargantuan flower, you may want to downsize a bit.)
