Hey Sherrie! What size thread and hook are you using? I'm trying 3.25 hook and it still looks too big. LOVE these!

Vianna said...

Your crocheted flowers are gorgeous! Please tell me what number hook you used with your DMC floss, and if you used all 6 threads or less. Also, where did you find the design/instructions? Internet or book? If you wouldnt mindsharing, I'd like to give them a try; I know how to crochet a little ... Thank you and warm greetings from Florida,
