This is the oh so famous African Flower pattern, which I've adapted into a pincushion. It's such a great little present idea and just right for my Nan. She's a knitter too, and one that tends to lose her yarn needle at least twice for every seam she sews!
She keeps them all in haphazard order in a basket by her chair and hopefully it'll save her rummaging around quite so much.
I hope she'll like it.
