Flower of Life pattern by BaaMeow


A great introductory blackwork pattern

- +


The Flower of Life is known as a ‘sacred geometry’ pattern comprising interlocking circles . Instead of trying to replicate perfect circles, the designer worked with the nature of the gridded fabric to create an endlessly repeatable and captivating pattern, which gives the same hypnotic feeling. The eye is drawn to the centre of the petals and then out again. This pattern is charted in two colourways and is perfect to get a feel for blackwork or to practice some relaxing, mindful stitching.
