A Bunch Of Crochet Flowers For A Friend

I thought I’d share a little bunch of crochet pink flowers I made for a friend who has been unwell. They are crochet in cottons from my stash. I had many colours of yarn but somehow the pinks spoke to me while diving for yarn. I will allow the pictures to speak for themselves while I contemplate what flowers to make for six green striped China cup and saucer sets that I have. Perhaps just something simple in cream. We’ll see what rolls off the hook.

Crochet flowers are great to give as a present to somebody in hospital as many hospitals do not allow cut flowers on the wards.

Flower Power

I am currently preparing the material for the Crochet Flower class at The Yarn Room this coming Saturday and thought I would share the amazing transforming powers of flowers.

I made the very flattering Bellflower sweater by Liselotte Weller during the winter in a plain sage colour and I though I would try it out with some Flower Power. The sweater wool is quite rough, and not for the faint hearted so the sweater is also better known as The Rug but that has nothing to do with anything really. As I mentioned, it’s plain in colour and quite discreet really.

The transformation is quite significant in this case I think. The flower is so large that I had to use three pins to make it sit right and by using pins rather than sewing it on permanently the sweater is nice and versatile and can easily be turned back into being it’s plain old self again. This would obviously work on a plain knitted sweater too.

Now that is Flower Power if I ever saw it!
