After that i crocheted a round of slipstitches, and some netting and double crochet to get the right shape. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!!
The other challenge was to use something, you wouldn't normally see in crochet. I found some flowers from my fly curtain, and dabbled with them. It took some effort to incorporate the flowers into the crochet, but i succeeded nevertheless:) Again i used netting to connect the flowers.
