This is a pattern to crochet hibiscus flowers which can be used to make pretty summer accessories. I use the flowers for hair ties, or to jazz up accessories such as a hat or a bag. The finished flowers measure about 5 1/2 inches or 14cm across, and you can experiment with different colours.

The hibiscus flower stimulates thoughts of Polynesia, Hawaii and tropical islands, however Australia also has approximately 35 native hibiscus plants. Sturt’s Desert Rose (Gossypium sturtianum) is one of them, and is the floral symbol for the Northern Territory. More recently it has also been the “Sorry” flower used as a symbol by the stolen generation. It was named in honour of Captain Charles Sturt who collected seeds on his inland journey to central Australia in 1844.

Patterns use a 4mm, J6 hook and worsted weight/double knitting/8ply yarn. They and are provided in both Australian/British and American instructions and will be emailed to you in a PDF format. There are no shipping costs. Remember I am real Aussie bird and may be asleep while you are awake having fun on etsy. This means you need to give me time to wake up before I can deliver! I can only accept paypal.

These are original patterns protected by copyright and not to be reproduced, not to be resold, posted on the web or used to make items to sell for personal profit. I have no problems in these being used for gifts, or charity fund raising as I think they are just perfect for that. There is nothing wrong with sharing hibiscus love around!
