Frangipani Flower, free pattern and photo tutorial

I wrote this pattern for a frangipani flower in 2012 and have had it for sale in my Ravelry store since 2013, but now I have decided to share it as a free pattern! I have taken some photos, hopefully they help a bit. I have also a pattern for making this into a square for an afghan block to make rugs with! I will blog about that very soon!
this frangipani flower is now a free pattern
