Flower of the month: Primrose

Crochet Primrose by C Percy Designs

Left: {Insert}   Right: Crochet Carnations created by me. Pattern below.

The Primrose symbolises Modesty, distinction, and virtue. 

After creating an Primrose inspiration board on Pinterest I got started on making some Primroses.  To be honest I've never really studied the construction of the Primrose flower.  Its actually a very pretty flower.  I love its star shaped centre and its petals with that have a dip in the middle.
