Crochet Bouquet: Easy Designs for Dozens of Flowers
Crochet Bouquet: Easy Designs for Dozens of Flowers
This work contains crochet bouquets of nearly 50 wonderful flowers, in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours! Created in ribbon, chenille and silk, this contemporary garden will get intermediate-level crocheters grasping their hooks. Some of the flora looks realistic; others are beautifully fanciful, pure products of the imagination. A simple, well-photographed basics section explains how to create them all: specialty techniques include felting, stacking the flowers, stiffening the petals and linking the flowers together. 'Grow' daffodils, dahlias, ferns, primroses, sunflowers and violets - or even a fantastic blossom with layers of scalloped petals radiating out in increasing size from a crystal button centre. For added inspiration, a series of showcase projects incorporates the blossoms, including hats, backpacks, pillows and cards.
