Friends Around the World CAL – Origami Flower

I hope you enjoyed last week’s Petals and Diamonds pattern for Friends Around the World crochet along (CAL) organized by the CAL – Crochet A Long group.  Today I am thrilled to introduce you to my second square / the CAL’s 21st pattern.  I named it Origami Flower.

Inspiration

Growing up in Japan, I played a lot with origami and one of my favorite things to make was fortune tellers. It is simple and easy to make but it can be quite mesmerizing when you are trying to get the fortune you want (I use to write in fortunes like “he likes me” into the fortune petals).

Cute fortune teller made with a kit from the Children’s Bookshop in New Zealand

I especially like it when they are made with cute paper like this one found at the Children’s Bookshop.

Origami Flower

Origami FlowerJust as last week, you can find the free pattern on my Ravelry page.  English pattern is in US terms and you can also find translations in Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Korean, Spanish, and Swedish – courtesy of the fabulous CAL – Crochet A Long translation team.  (Please note only the English version has been tested. If there are any discrepancies between the English version and other languages, please refer to the English version for accuracy.)

The above sample is made with Scheepjes Stone Washed XL (color 853 Amazonite) with a 5.5 mm hook and measures around 12 inches / 30 cm.

It is literally 100 degrees Fahrenheit (@38 degrees Celsius) in Texas right now but when it gets a little cooler, I am thinking of making a wearable item using this square.  Stay tuned!

P.S.  Don’t forget to check out all the other Friends Around the World squares here – they are all free!
