Aquilegia – often known as Granny’s Bonnet or Columbine – gets its name from aquila, the Latin word for eagle, since its petals are said to resemble an eagle’s claw.
Columbines are usually found in shades of blues, purples, and sometimes pinks. Some are one color, and some will have white inner flowers, such as in our Columbine pattern.
This flower can be worked with any weight of yarn. Finer weights will create a smaller flower, and bulkier weights will create a larger flower. Use the hook size appropriate for the yarn you choose. We used worsted weight yarn and a size H-8 hook in our samples.
