Stylecraft Frida’s Flowers CAL Pack – Special DK
Following on from the success of her Lily Pond CAL (Crochet-Along), designer Jane Crowfoot has created a stunning crochet pattern for her new CAL, Frida’s Flowers. Inspired by traditional Mexican folk art and Frida Kahlo’s colourful embroidered dresses, Jane has created a fresh new floral design for her new project.
The shades chosen reflect the traditional crewel work of Mexico which often features bold, bright colours on a dark background – and of course, Frida was known for her colourful floral headwear, so there are lots of flowers in the design.
Although the CAL has now finished, the pattern is still available for free on Stylecraft's website. Frida's Flowers.
Frida’s Flowers is an ideal opportunity for crocheters to improve their skills and is not intended for complete beginners.

Not used yet but would like some patterns for the crocheted flowers.
Excellent value and beautiful pattern
Brilliant; around half the price of the kit on Ebay. Fab thanks.
Stylecraft Frida's Flowers Cal Pak
Very pleased with the finished blanket. Colours are vibrant and work well together. Was a little easier than Sophies Universe to crochet.
Great colours and excellent value.
The yarn pack is excellent value. The colours are great. I like the feel of the wool as I crochet. I had a bit of work to locate the pattern. I found it on the Stylecraft website. It would be good if this was flagged up better.
