How to crochet Spring blossom.

It is grey and dull in Dorset today, is it grey where you live?

As a colour lover, dull and grey are two words that do not make me smile.

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

 

 

  1. Next you thread the long end of yarn onto a tapestry needle and weave the needle back through the ‘petals’
  2.  Pull tight.
  3. 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.

Do give it a try and let me know how it goes, by sharing your twiggy blossoms with me on instagram HERE or face book, or blogging about your version and letting me know?

I really would love to see if we can pretend spring has sprung, with all our crochet blossoms?

    I am definitely going to give this a go Daisy, they are so lovely and we have lots of twigs to use up! My little man has a collection. On another note – I am also nearly finished my McCall's A-line skirt! Has it been a year since you did the sew-along? So a slow project but a fun one – your tutorial was invaluable! Thanks so much. xxx

    Really lovely project and you make it all look so scrummy. I'm thinking you may well be publishing a craft project book someday.

    Your blossoms are great! I was just making some little flowers for my wreath and thinking that I could make some to be cherry blossoms on twigs, I like your little yellow forsythia ones!! xx

      Good idea, I must pop over and have a look at your wreath!
      It is the time for floral things I think to banish the grey days!

    Oh wow – I actually thought that was Forsythia until I scrolled further down!! Ours isn't in blossom yet so I was wondering how yours was, seeing as you're only just over the border into Dorset! Beautiful and very Springlike:)

      Ah ha!
      Now that has to be the best type of compliment…mistaking it for the real thing!
      …thank you…
