Poinsettia Reviewed by wanda baker on 2010-12-05 *****
Lovely pattern, but not quite accurate. In nature, flowers almost always have an odd number of petals. I googled poinsettias, just to be sure. Most images I found had seven large petals, with five smaller inner petals. Flowers always look better if made with an odd number of petals. Otherwise, I really like this one. I am making several with a glitter yarn, to use on a scarf.

This pattern was easy enough to follow, but the amount of time it takes to assemble the piece and the effort it takes is simply not worth it. You have to thread all of the yarn through each petal - that's 2 pieces per petal plus the leaf = 14 pieces of yarn that need to be threaded (which is my least favorite part of any project). Plus, I'm pretty sure it's impossible to sew together all 6 petals. I had to crochet a ring and attach them to the ring one by one - it was much easier this way. They don't lay right, either. Not worth the time in my opinion. Also, they want you to use a K hook?? I used a G and the poinsettia still came out huge.

Ah, thanks for the correction! I thought I was going crazy:) And thank you for the above ideas. Very pretty and easy crochet pattern. I'm going to use them to decorate presents.
Happy Holidays!

I just loved the idea you shared with us for these poinsettias. I did get frusterated with the first patterns mistake esspecialy that it was a pattern for kids, didn't want to think that it would turn them from crocheting as a great hobby because they were unable to do the pattern. I played with it and I did a couple changes one I would continue with the petal and connect two and bindoff making three double petals and sew them together, the other change I tried making them half size just reduce pattern by half then slip stitch down the back and you can continue on without binding off and all petals are connected, They are cute and now I have a wide variety of poinsettias with unquie character in each one.
