Handicraft helps us to cope with stress of our hectic times and really helps to relax. But it also helps us to create really fancy items like a handbag or an applique for clothing. 
And the traditional for irish crochet lace element if a flower, you can name any and there will be a pattern for it.  But Ukranian masters go beyond and invent their own elements, like this flower with a center made of a puff stitch
I've used Anna-16  yarn, but you can take any size 10 yarn and a hook 1-1.12 mm. Also you can combine different colors for center, puffs and petals (i.e dark green, orange and purple for an echinacea flower)
