Crochet and texture go hand-in-hand; even the flattest of crocheted pieces has a bit of texture and dimension. That's the case with this lovely flower applique. It lies reasonably flat, which makes it ideal for stitching onto many different types of surfaces. Yet it's also pleasantly textured, as crochet should be.
I've crocheted my sample flower using several different colors of Cascade 220. If these shades of blue and green don't strike your fancy, please feel free to experiment with other colors - and for that matter, other brands or fibers as well. For this project, you can raid your scrap yarn stash to get your materials.
This rose is crocheted in three easy layers, and then embellished with a button or bauble that ties the look together.
