Let Melissa Bradley of Yarn Blossom Boutique lead you down the garden path to discover a colorful world of crochet flowers, plants and garden creatures with this blooming marvellous book. Plants and flowers make everyone smile, but never more so than when they are made out of crochet with sweet little faces. This adorable collection of patterns will fill your world with everlasting flowers, without having to do any digging whatsoever.
Cultivate your color knowledge and a bumper crop of makes, perfect to bring the outdoors in and to give as gifts. As well as the patterns, Melissa shares all the know-how on the simple crochet techniques required for everything to come up roses. Alongside the flowers and plants, you'll spot cute bugs and gardening tools, brought to life kawaii-style, to create the ultimate garden-lovers collection.
As in her first book Kawaii Crochet, Melissa breaks the patterns down by color with chapters for Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and White, with favorite plants and flowers in each section. You'll find step-by-step patterns for crochet tulips, roses, pansies, poppies, gerberas, daffodils, sunflowers, marigolds, delphiniums, daisies, violets, lilies and more, plus potted foliage in the form of cacti, ferns and string of pearls. And making an appearance in each chapter are cute creatures such as worms, ladybugs, snails, caterpillars, beetles and moths, and a few gardening tools too. The plants are presented either as bulbs or in colorful pots and vases, making them absolutely perfect for giving as gifts.
At the back of the book you'll find full tutorials with photos and diagrams on how to work the crochet stitches, how to add the faces, and how to make your flowers stand up tall with wire hidden inside the stems.
