100 Patterns for Crochet Flowers, Plants and Petals
Create stunning crochet collages with this collection of 100 patterns for crochet flowers, plants and petals. The motif designs are inspired by the colours and shapes found in nature and, while some are recognisable as specific plant species, they are not intended to be botanically accurate representations of particular plants.
Alongside the more usual front-on view of flowers in full bloom, the author has included some patterns for flowers viewed from the side, half-opened flowers, buds, seedheads, berries and fungi. There is also a large variety of foliage types from individual leaves to leafy stems, ferns and grasses. Each of the collages has a different, sometimes seasonal, theme and all the compositions are different – there are wreaths and bouquets, some are arranged in a jug or a vase while others grow straight from the ground.
You can have fun recreating the collages that the author has designed, or you can mix and match the motifs of your favourite plants and flowers to make your own creations. There are instructions for which yarn to use to create the motifs, but you can experiment with different types of yarn to create your own versions. As well as creating the beautiful crochet collages which could be mounted and framed, there are ideas for what to make from the crocheted motifs including decorative appliqué embellishments on clothes and homewares, as well as bookmarks and keyring charms.
