The name Clematis comes from the Greek meaning climbing plant and it originates from the 16th century referring to the blossoming vine with white or purple blooms. It is these beautiful white and purple flowers that first attracted me to the Clematis as purple used to be my favourite colour (until I came to the conclusion that I just couldn't decide on a favourite colour!).
This pattern is worked in the round and I use abbreviations according to US crochet language. The finished clematis is approximately 4.25" (11cm) in diameter. This flower would be beautiful as a hair fascinator or as an embellishment on a bag.
