Pink Saturday and A Crochet Video

Happy Pink Saturday! The pink items I am sharing with you today are these little pink crochet flowers I made which are very popular right now.
I have been knitting for years but a few months ago I taught myself to crochet too. When I saw the pattern for these flowers on Nicole Heady's blog a few weeks ago I knew I wanted to give them a try. At first I had a hard time figuring out how to do the second layer but I finally got it. A few days later I was over at the Papertrey forum and saw there were some ladies there that were having problems figuring out the second layer too so I told them I would do a video showing how I do it. I don't know the name for the stitch I used but if you do let me know. I think it may be a frontpost or a backpost though. Anyways I hope the video helps to explain the second layer for those of you that were having problems with it. You can find the rest of the pattern here.
Don't forget to go to Beverly's blog to see the list of the other ladies that are participating in Pink Saturday today too.
I am also doing a giveaway in the next post for a package of wood veneer so be sure to check that out as well. I will be back soon with more crafty things to share until then have a great Pink Saturday and I hope you enjoy the video.

I tried to teach myself to crochet - no luck. I can knit but crochet just isn't for me. Yours however, is beautiful! Happy Pink Saturday.
