This one didn't come out as round as it was supposed to -- not sure what I did wrong. But it's a fortunate accident, I think, because the colors and shape reminded me of a peacock, and I happened to have some fuzzy blue yarn. So....
Peacock feather! I just did some increasing of size towards the point -- single, to double, to triple crochet, to give it a bit more pointiness. I think I could make it even more like a peacock feather with more work, but this is a cute shape for a desi accent to a jacket or even purse, I think. Will probably go to one of my sisters.
The next one was her 'simple five', and I like how it came out, but the fuzzy yarn did make it difficult to see the pattern; for this kind of thing it might work better to use a simpler yarn. But it's cute enough, I think -- might get pinned on one of Kavi's jackets.
And this is my favorite so far. I actually like my version better than the one in the book, because the fuzzy yarn has a more organic look and seems a bit less bare than her aster. Of course, it looks a bit more like some kind of sea anemone than a flower, but I'm okay with that. It's about as big as my hand, and I think it'd look super-cute pinned to a jacket or hat. :-)
