Crocheted Felted Flower

After felting

Before felting

I wanted a felted flower for my Guy Laroche Meets Thakoon holiday jacket. I found this Crocheted Felted Flower Brooche pattern and downloaded it. I made my first one using Brown Sheep worsted lambswool and a size Q crochet hook, but it came out huge. I then took some Araucania Ranco Solid sock yarn (leftover from my Swiss Cheese scarf) and a size F crochet hook. I ran it through three consecutive cycles in the washing machine (no dryer), and voilà!
