WHAT IS IT?
A fabulous crochet pattern for a colourful flower garland made using our pure cotton Double Top DK yarn.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
This brilliant pattern shows you how to create 3 different flowers and foliage and make a 6 feet long garland that could decorate your home or garden with a splash of summery colour.
Choose shades to co-ordinate with your kitchen or conservatory or beautiful across a mantel piece or bedroom mirror. Alternatively the individual flowers make brilliant corsages to give as gifts, wear as brooches or to embellish bags or cushions.
Double Top is a standard double knitting cotton available in lots of bright, joyful colours! There are plenty of shades to ensure you can make lots of unique flowers and make the garland longer and longer...! Or play around with a pared down palette and choose just one design for a lovely simple garland.
Versatile, brilliant and great fun for all ages. You can use most double knitting yarns for this pattern, just crochet a tension square first to check your gauge if using an alternative.
