This is the Cereus plant bloom. You can see how it got the common name of Dutchman's Pipe.
The stem and flower are about 10-12" in size.
The bloom itself is about 5".
What an amazing flower to behold! What a creative Creator!
I am creating a pretty cool pattern but the little bit of ribbing does nothing to stop the 'curl' of the stockinette. I will have to block it to near death but I love the play of colors!
One repeat done, on to the next!
