  2. Such a gorgeous flower. My mum was wanting me to make her a brooch, but all the patterns have been too large for her liking, this one and your pansy pattern are perfect. Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Thank you! Here is a conversion of the stitches that differ between US and UK terms. US term is before the equal sign and UK term after. sc = dc, hdc = htr, dc = tr, tr = dtr, dtr = ttr . I hope this helps. Otherwise you can google on UK and US crochet conversion chart. Have a lovely day!
