This is one fun pattern! If you try it now, you'd see yourself crocheting multiples of this in different colors. It'll jazz up any of your other crocheted pieces like bags, sweaters, or even blankets when you add a few of these water lily flowers.

Do you ever find yourself in a certain type of mood for a particular kind of crochet project? The other day, I realized I was in the mood to make flowers- only I didn't want to make just any flower. I wanted to crochet a flower pattern that I have never seen crocheted before.
The Water Lily crochet flower looks a lot like the Water Lotus, but when you really research you will see the difference between the two easily. I decided on designing a Water Lily because the lilies grow in a variety of colors… allowing my color options to be endless.
