Today I want to share with you some of my favourite flower motifs. All of these are free online tutorials and you can head directly to each by clicking on the designers names or the images.
Crochet Puff Flower Motif
Crochet Flower Puff Stitch Pattern
These puff stitch flowers are so satisfying and look great in a mercerised cotton.
Blanket in Bloom
By Alice by Day
It’s the way that these all come together to make a shawl that I love the most about this one.
Taanvi’s Flower Crochet Motif
By Pink Mambo
You can easily make this with a chunky or lace yarn and it will be beautiful regardless.
Crochet Pointy Flower
By Cheri’s Creations
The texture is gorgeous. I’d love a blanket made from this motif.
By Patricia Stuart
I love all of Patricia’s squares, but this one is my fave.
Japanese Flower Motif
By Happy In Red
The Japanese Flower was one of my first ever motifs when I relearned to crochet. I skipped the grannies and went straight to this. Not very well, obviously! Esther does a much better job.
Egyptian Star Flower
I made this tapestry motif, inspired by a trip to Egypt.
Flower Power Mandala
I love mandalas, but I especially love open lacy mandalas. This one is a fantastic example.
By Dedri Uys
The Game Changer. If you haven’t made a Sophie you’re missing out on the Trans Siberian of crochet – glorious surprises with each leg of the journey.
And Dedri has worked tirelessly to turn Sophie into a book! I’m getting my copy in a few weeks when I see Dedri in person (I must tell her), I can’t wait! You can get your own copy at Wool Warehouse*.
I am a massive fan of Pinterest. The amount of time I spend there is ridiculous. Pinterest is now to me what Facebook was a couple of years ago. I will have a quick browse before I go to bed at night and am wondering what cool projects I can find first thing in the morning.
I especially love the global society we live in. It means that first thing in the morning I’m being flooded with ideas Americans have been pinning while I’ve been sleeping, and when I get home from work I have the same guilty pleasure courtesy of the Australians.
Here I am going to share some of the coolest Pinterest crochet projects that I have found over the previous week or so. Thanks to the new Pinterest look and feel, it’s easy to link to the source of the pins which is a wonderful addition to the site. No more clicking through thirty pins to get to the origin!
My faves for this week:
This is a hat that I’m biding my time to get stuck into. Aren’t the colours just gorgeous?
Granny Stripe Messenger Bag, found on Craftsy. I’m wondering where I can pick up the extra bits and pieces for the handles and snap closure, so I can make something just like this.
Roses and Lace scarf from Crochet World magazine. I just love the roses. Why aren’t there more hours in the day?
Crochet Deer Head from ManafkaMina on Etsy. These just make me laugh. I’d love one on my wall. I can just imagine my library with all my crochet trophy heads….
Ribbed Newsboy Hat by Posh Patterns on Craftsy. I’ve just bought this patern and am busy making a couple for a friend (I’ll link them when finished). It’s a wonderful pattern, highly recommended.
I’d love it if you took a moment to browse my pins and you’re more than welcome to follow me. I’m always hunting for more inspiration, so I’ll definitely follow you.
