Work in progresses are my weakness! I always seem to have at least 4 or 5 projects on the go at one time. It's not that I don't enjoy finishing projects (apart from sewing in ends), I just really enjoy picking out new yarn and finding patterns and finding away to make them unique for me. Seeing the project come together is my favourite part, so much so that I almost get disappointed when a project is nearly over.
One of the WIPs that has remained half finished for a number of weeks is this bouquet of crochet flowers. (Pattern from Mollie Makes).
I finally allocated an afternoon to finishing the final 6 flowers and getting this WIP completed and thought I would share a few photos and how I did it with you.
The flowers are really very simple to make, and after searching through lots of patterns, they were probably the nicest too!
I used a size 4 crochet hook and what ever yarn I had in my stash, which is mostly 8 ply.
Turn and dc into the 5th chain from the hook, *ch, sk ch, dc-ch-dc in next stitch*. Repeat this sequence to the end.(Your work will curl, this is good!)
Turn your work, chain 3, 5 dc in the chain space, *sc in next chain space, 6 dc in next chain space*, repeat this sequence to the end.
Leave a long tail when you fasten off. You use this to sew the bottom of the flower together once you have curled it all into position.
I'm really happy with how these crochet flowers have turned out and I have the vase in pride of place on my hall stand at the front door.
What is your favourite flower to crochet??
