Or this lovely dahlia. It's a work of art.
The first recorded use of the word Cerise is from Crochet Explained and Illustrated, by Cornelia Mee. London: David Bogue, Fleet Street (1846), p. 117. Here is a portion of the text.
"One skein of shaded cerise, 2 of plain bright cerise, and 1 of black crochet silk, and 3 bunches of No. 6 steel beads are required."
I wonder if they had instructions for crocheted flower pots in 1846?
