Great flat-form flower to make. It easy and tricky at the same time, but works beautifully on cushions or blanket corners. It is intermediate flower but if you have followed the blogs from the beginning you will have no problem to make it as beginner. Aster flowers would be great also for free form crochet.
Aster is mainly Eurasian flower, and have around 180 species. The name comes from Greek word and means 'star', referring to the flower head. Because of the variety of the colour, it's common garden flower. It can nearly grow anywhere and is excellent flower to grow.
