Crochet Pattern: Fuchsia Flower

Once upon a time, my daughter Nayfah asked me, "What's the smallest bird in the world?"
I said, "It's humming bird. People named it colibri."
"How does it look?" she asked, again.

I opened Chrome on my phone and searched for colibri images. I found a beautiful picture that made me and my daughter charmed. Here is the pic:


My daughter said, "What a cute bird!"
I said, "What a beautiful flower!"
Seems like we have different point of view, haha!

I went to a nurseries and find no fuchsia flowers here, in Sumenep. So... I think I should make the crocheted ones.



Hours later, I messed up the yarn basket looking for white and pink fingering-weighted cotton yarns. I zoom-in the pic then tried to make petals.

Thanks God I found matching flower buds :D
And here is the result:

Done!
I was pleased by the result. Of course the original one is more beautiful. God make it, right? , I couldn't find the plant here, in Sumenep. having the crocheted version done, make me feel happy.


I documented the making process, including pattern and step-by-step pictures. Then, in my spare time I wrote the tutorial.

Karakteristik Benang Rajut

Di Indonesia, benang yang paling popular adalah benang acrylic wool , atau yang lebih familiar disebut “benang siet”. Namun, sebenarnya jenis benang sangat bervariasi. Berikut diantaranya: 1.       Benang katun ( Cotton yarn ) Sesuai namanya, benang yang umum digunakan oleh para pemula ini terbuat dari serat kapas. Benang katun bersifat dingin, mudah menyerap keringat, lentur, kuat, ringan, dan memiliki banyak varian warna. Benang ini termasuk “benang multiproject ”, karena bisa digunakan untuk berbagai macam jenis rajutan. Misalnya, bros, bandana, pinggiran kerudung, syal, tatakan gelas, tas, sepatu, sandal, dan sebagainya. Berdasarkan varian warnanya, benang katun dibagi menjadi dua kelompok, yaitu plain (polos) dan ombre (warna sembur/gradasi). Tingkat kehalusannya pun berbeda-beda antara jenis benang katun yang satu dengan yang lain. Soft cotton , misalnya, adalah yang paling halus diantara benang berbahan dasar kapas. Sementara itu, satu tingkat di bawahnya, ada katun b

Bagaimana Menghitung Harga Rajutan?

Bagaimana sih, menentukan harga untuk hasil rajutan kita? Perajut A harganya sekian, perajut B sekian, sedangkan perajut lainnya sampai X, Y, Z harganya juga berbeda. Nasehat saya: jangan pernah menjadikan harga orang lain sebagai patokan. Takut kalah saingan dengan yang menjual dengan harga murah? Padahal mungkin saja mereka baru bisa merajut. Jadi, harga dibuat semurah mungkin supaya cepat balik modal dan mereka bisa terus merajut.Bisa juga karena mereka memproduksi secara massal, dengan mengupah orang lain dengan gaji sangat rendah. Hasilnya? Anda bisa melihat rajutan-rajutan yang dijual di pasar yang harganya amat sangat murah sekali. Hingga orang-orang akan berpikir, "Untuk apa susah-susah membuat bros rajut jika kita bisa membelinya di pasar dengan harga Rp.2.000 per buah?" Beberapa perajut juga menetapkan harga tinggi. Biasanya, mereka adalah perajut-perajut yang sudah punya ”jam terbang” tinggi dan kualitas produknya memang bagus, sehingga orang
