The crochet flower stitch is a simple pattern repeat that resembles fillet crochet. All you need to know to crochet this flower stitch are basic crochet stitches.
The stitch :
I found this crochet flower stitch in my Vogue Dictionary of Crochet Stitches, a vintage stitch dictionary. If you have never heard of this stitch dictionary, hunt down a copy it’s worth it. The stitch is worked in multiples of 15 + 8. I think this stitch is perfect for your summer projects. Even though, the stitch is open lace, it does have nice structure.
