Free Crochet Lavender Potpourri Holder Pattern (Great Gift Idea)

Beautiful easy crochet lavender potpourri holder. Ideal as a gift for someone special or for just making for the home.
I have my little lavender pot on my bedside table and love the soothing effects of the scent. Excellent for helping you drift off to sleep. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis, I try not to let it get me down, and find lavender very beneficial for helping me when y symptoms flair up. Lavender is mostly known for its health benefits and also the beautiful flowers are so delicate, I have the most beautiful FRENCH LAVENDER -( Lavendula stoechas) In my front garden and every time I see it I have always wondered if I could somehow re-create it with yarn.  I eventually decided to go with a single crochet V stitch, as I loved how it looked like the main part of the flower. And went on to re-create the leaves with descending stitches all worked into the one stitch.  Just add in your favourite Potpourri finish off with a white ribbon threaded around through the alternate DC V rounds and if I do say so myself I think it turned out spectacularly.
