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 pretty crochet blossom for spring?
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)

Pattern Instructions for crochet blossom.
With chosen colour, I used a stylecraft daffodil yellow in a DK weight.
- 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 below: 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.
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?
