Flower Embellishment Applique
designed by Kim Guzman © Feb. 2014
Technique: Regular Crochet
Although the flower embellishment can be made alone, if you would like the set as shown in the photo, here are the links you will need. Be certain to also print your graph for the tank top, in both front and back, in the size you need. The graphs will depict the stripes for the Boricua Tank Top. When using the graphs for the Floral Baby Set, make the back in one solid color and the front using only the center stripe.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
