African Flower Power Pot Holder

I finished a quick crochet project this morning, the DROPS Design 'flower power pot holder.' I made it in the same colors as the African violet, which is native to Tanzania. I actually started this project yesterday, but did it all wrong and frogged it back to round 3. I found a video by garnstudio, that shows you exactly how to crochet into the back of the flower, and was then able to finish it in no time. Here is the link to the helpful video:

A very nice project once you get how it's done- my husband agrees with me that it's not as useful being a pot holder as it is decorating my table. :)



If you'd like to make one for yourself, a link to the free pattern can be found on my ravelry project page- http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Shaadia/147-21-flower-power---pot-holder-in-paris
