Why We Love Lily Flowers

This pattern is a must-try for a few reasons.

  • Firstly because the final look is amazing; the lily’s delicate petals, attractive leaf, and structure are lovely. You can change the assembly of the flowers, leaves, and buds to create various stunning designs.
  • Secondly, you have a wide option of color choices. Use white, cream, and soft yellow to mimic lily colors for a timeless effect. If you are adventurous, try strong colors like deep purple, rich pink, fiery orange, or red to spice up your creations. Color gradients or ombre yarns will also give your crochet lilies a unique look.
  • Lastly, you can use the individual parts of the pattern to incorporate as decor for other crochet projects.
