A Stargazer Lily To Crochet Use To Decorate About Anything!

Stargazer Lilies are my daughter's favorite flower, and are definitely one of mine! I thought it would be fun to create a Stargazer in crochet. i designed one flower first in a larger size to fit my 3" hair barrette finding. Then I decided I wanted to create a more realistic flower with the stamens and seeds, in a slightly smaller size. Both were done in size 20 thread. The second flower has more of a 3D effect. I'm still in the process of finishing that second flower but a photo of it in progress is here.

I'll include both versions of the pattern for you here. This pattern uses the Intarsia technique of crocheting. You'll be carrying three colors at the same time.

Although the only stitch used in this pattern is single crochet, this may be a bit challenging for a beginner due to the techniques used. It's up to you! I've included YouTube tutorials below on Intarsia crochet. Happy crocheting!

A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

Finishing

For barrette, you can either glue the decoration in place OR (my preferred method) you can tie adjacent thread ends around the holes in the ends of the barrette finding.

Embroider black "spots" on lily if desired as shown in photo. Add bead accents if desired.

A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at Craftsy.com to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
