Victorian Flowers Friday: Eglantine Rose

Victorian Flowers Eglantine Rose collage

This week’s Victorian Flower pattern is a motif that forms part of an 1888 Victorian era “Mat” or d’oyley.  I’ll rewrite the whole pattern, soon , and include it in a book of designs inspired by this Friday Flowers series.

As a motif the flower can be used to adorn hats, headbands, or bags; you can add crochet chains from each side and use them as a gift tie, as I have done on this crocheted lace washcloth.  They can be made with thread or with yarn–just use the hook that you’d normally use with the weight of yarn, remembering that you want the work to be quite tight so that the petals hold their shape.

Be sure to come back next week to see what the new Friday’s Flower will be!
