Simple Nimophila Flower

By: Inessa Medina from
Simple Nimophila Flower
Simple Nimophila Flower

"I was looking for a simple flower to offset my crochet poppies when I spotted Nemophila flowers (aka Baby Blue Eyes). I found it really fun & easy to recreate them in crochet form! I experimented with a few different hook sizes. I think that a little bit of variation in the size of these flowers will make them appear more lifelike in a bouquet or flower crown. You’ll need just a little skill with embroidery to add a finishing touch to these nemophila. I created the look of black stamen with french knots. I think you could skip this step and use a black sharpie to make little dots if french knots aren’t your thing."

So dainty and pretty. I DO know how to make a French knot! I have not done one of those in oh, probably 35 years or so. My gramma taught me what she knew about embroidery, and we would sit in the living room when I was a girl with our hoops and thread. Looking at the nimophila flower it brings back a lot of good memories. For these flowers, I would use them to dress a white toss pillow cover for a bit of a shabby chic appeal.

From time to time I will find a flower pattern that looks life like, like this one that I am just so inclined to crochet just one. And from time to time, even though I put a lot of effort into it, the design is never as great as the designers. This is a pretty nimophila flower pattern and I hope mine only looks half as adorable.

Whenever I run across a crochet flower project I take the time to save them. From time to time I will print the out before hand. Whenever I need a flower I will have some already saved and for the most part I can find the perfect one needed. I already have a use for this one. Thanks for the free post.
