Crochet flowers are a favourite with needlecrafters because they can be made from scraps of yarn, are small and therefore achievable, and they are versatile. Use them to add charm to décor projects such as pillows, guest towels, or napkin holders, or gather them into a pretty corsage for a lapel or hat trim.
The flower patterns offer designs suitable for all levels, from beginners to experienced crocheters. The combination of written instructions, colour charts and photographs take the reader through the process step-by-step, making it easy to check at every stage whether your work corresponds with the pattern.
Content includes information on hooks and yarns, basic crochet stitches, and how to read a pattern. Beginners can start with simple patterns using just one or two stitches and colours and, as their skills improve, they can take on more advanced designs incorporating additional stitches and shaping techniques. There is also a short section on how to use your crochet flowers to create home décor items and fashion accessories.
