I wish the flowers in my garden always came out as well as all these crochet flowers have! Part 4: 5 and 6 petal flowers

Time to get back on to the crochet flower theme that has started to take over in my crochet makes these last few weeks – I think it’s seeing all the lovely flowers coming out in the garden with this nicer weather that has set me off making them all! This time I decided to have a go at some 5 and 6 petal flowers, I wasn’t too sure what type of flower these actually were while I was making them – I’m terrible at identifying flowers! it was only once I had finished them I realised how much some of them looked like different clematis flowers! The pointed petal ones look exactly like some clematis plants I have growing in my garden at the moment!

After making some pointed petal ones I also decided to do some round edged petal flowers too, inspired by a lovely little pink flower that has bloomed in my garden over the last few days, luckily these crochet flowers will last longer than this little pink flower which sadly only lasts for a couple of days!
