Spikeflower – zig-zag crochet flower
Today I am introducing you another crochet flower – the crocheted spikeflower, also called zig-zag crochet flower.
Anyone who has already crocheted a rose knows the underlying principle. A long crochet chain with different sized bows. But what if the gently curved arches are replaced with spikes? I started this experiment six months ago and these crochet spikeflowers are the result.
Three small, medium and large spikes are added to a chain. Using a needle, the chain stitches are sewn flower-shaped. Buttons work as a centerpiece, but a crochet knot is doing well too. To create it crochet three sc in a magic ring and pull it together. The two ends are then tied together and a small round center results.
Actually I am using two of my crochet spikeflowers as brooches, but they are quite decorative on bags, scarves and caps too.
