It is grey and dull in Dorset today, is it grey where you live?
I am seeking colour where ever I can these days.
I am imagining blossom, flowers and blue skies…
If you are missing colour too, here is a tiny spring crochet idea to make you feel cheery…
would you like to make this…?
How to Crochet Blossom.
I am assuming you know the basics of crochet?
… because this really is basic, you only need to know how to chain and to slip-stitch (ch and ss)
You will need:…
It goes like this:
With chosen colour:
4ch, ss into 2nd chain from hook, ss into last chain from hook,
Repeat four more times. fasten off leave a long yarn end.
That is it!
Repeat as many times as you need blossoms…I made 16.
You will end up with rows of something that looks like this…the little ‘bumps’ will become petals
- Next you thread the long end of yarn onto a tapestry needle and weave the needle back through the ‘petals’
- Pull tight.
- Keep the blossom threaded onto the needle and simply sew it to your chosen twigs.
It think it is a nice idea to sew the blossom on ‘back to back’ ? it looks like a double head of blossom.
I attached a little birds nest, a gift from a friend, onto the twigs.
I find this little project reminds me that spring is on the way, it is also quite Zen like, don’t you think…calming and simple.
I really would love to see if we can pretend spring has sprung, with all our crochet blossoms?
