How to make a crochet calendula flower

Calendula is a quintessential Italian officinalis plant. It also goes by the name of Marigold because of its distinguishing bright orange colour. Its flowers are really pretty and even healing, as a matter of fact they are used primarily to soothe irritated skin and as an anti-inflammatory too.

We want to honour this amazing flower today by making a crochet calendula which can be used in loads of different ways: as a keyring, a centrepiece or as something to decorate a top or a bag.

We’ve chosen the Lincoln yarn in the color Rust for this calendula. With a 100% cotton composition, shininess and slenderness, we thought it was the ideal one to give the flower a radiant and cheery look.

Let's start.
