"Loving You" Flower Pot Pattern Test [COMPLETE!]

Dear lovely crocheters,

I'm so happy to announce the completion of Sweet Softies' third pattern test: the "Loving You" Flower Pot design [click here for the free pattern]!  Hooray!  Big cheers for my hard-working testers!!

This was an especially challenging test because I had sent out an urgent, all-call message to those on my email list, requesting testers that could finish this project in less than a week!  My testers pulled through and did it with stunning results!  Though all testers were given the same written instructions, each pot is delightfully different and unique!  I love the different colors selected for the flowers, the embellishments used, and even the modifications added (e.g., leaves, vines)! 

Thus, I'm absolutely delighted to present to you these wonderful testers' sweet and adorable flower pots!  Below are the projects from testers who have agreed to allow me to showcase their stunning work! 馃挅

A sincere thank you goes out to all my testers for their hard work, efforts, and friendship!  It's because of wonderful people like you that I'm able to find even more joy in crocheting and designing!

With much love,
