Crochet Clock Face

Here is a little something I did when I took a friends clock apart and couldn't get it back together...lol. She asked me to make a piece of crochet to back it so I designed this piece and ordered a new mechanism to put into it.

She is a fan of anything Cath Kidston so this influenced the colour choice but feel free to pick your own colour way and have fun making it.





This pattern has not been tested so any suggestions for ammendments to it would be greatly appreciated.
