Crocodile_Flower_12_inch__final A couple of months ago, I published a pattern for an afghan square using the loop variation of the crocodile stitch for petals/leaves. This square bears some resemblance to that motif; however, this is actually a complete re-working of the design. The construction has been simplified; the petals/leaves have been tacked down, the background and edge have been changed. free pdf
Coaster. (from Hearts & Flowers, a LA booklet) The pattern was originally written for size 10 thread and intended to be used as a coaster, but by switching up to worsted weight (and substituting my own edging rounds), I ended up with a 12-inch block. The hearts themselves (before you add the rounds to turn them into squares) are cute, and I think they'd lend themselves well to use as appliques or in the colorful motif-based bunting/garland that has gotten so popular among crocheters.
