Poinsettia is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
Crochet a large poinsettia flower for Christmas - perfect as a table centrepiece or as a decoration. Or make a smaller one in fine yarn or thread to wear as a pin on your coat, a Christmas tree decoration, or anything else you can think of!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in red, green and yellow
Hook: E US/3.5mm crochet hook
Size: approx 5" (medium) - 6" (large) when made in worsted weight yarn. (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)
Option: Try using a finer yarn or crochet thread with a correspondingly smaller hook to give a more compact flower, e.g. 2 strands of #8 perle cotton held together, and a B (2.25mm) hook, gives an approximately 2.75" diameter medium Poinsettia.
