365days of Crochet Flowers

Why hello there!

If you are following me on Instagram and on my Facebook page, you would have noticed me posting A LOT of flowers. Well, it’s almost been a whole month’s worth! Can you believe January is just about over? Looks like this year is going to follow suit like 2017 and fly by.

It just hit me that I had posted the free patterns up for my #365daysofcrochetflowers, but never did a little blog up about them! Well 27 days late is better than never lol. If you’ve seen that long post of patterns, you would have read that it’s about making a different flower each and every day (except the first and second because I got bored with the same flower).

I have loved loved LOVEd making a new flower each day. ย It has been challenging at times, when I’m up at night just before bed time, sometimes falling asleep crocheting (shh I know you do it too), or first thing in the morning when creativity is at its best. I just hope I have enough left in the tank to keep going for the rest of the year. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how it all pans out.

What are you going to do with them all? I hear you asking…. well if I’m being honest, I have a few ideas floating around in my head, but none are sticking. So they could be turned into a few pieces or just one big one lol. One is sticking out a bit more than the others. Do you want to know? Oh of course you do….

Okay, no need to twist my arm more… BEDSPREAD. I’m picturing a lightly crocheted base where you attach each flower individually. YES!! I know it’s a lot of attaching but I can just see the finished piece now. A beautiful garden bed (get it hehe) of flowers laying wonderfully on your bed. There may even be some matching cushions or a shawl in there too.

Any how, enough with all the words an reading boring-ish stuff. Here are some photos of what I’ve done so far. Once I get a little bit more organised I plan to translate to UK terms too and compile into an ebook.

Here is the link to the actual patterns in my FREE PATTERNS. I will be sorting it out into months to make finding them a bit easier. I really hope you enjoy making these even more than I have had a blast designing them.

ALSO one quick little note… I have added this to Ravelry so you can add it to your Projects and keep a track of what you make and also so other people can see your beautiful garden. Click here to go thereย .

UPDATE: Colours and Yarn.
So I have been using up my stash of DMC Natura Just Cotton and a 3.5mm hook (these two are my go-to’s for each other) The colours I am using are… (and yes of course I’ll have to buy more lol)
– Prussian (64)
– Star Light (27)
– Blue Jeans (26)
– Amaranto (33)
– Turquoise (49)
– Chartreuse (48)
– Bamboo (76)
– Bruique (86)
– Pistache (13)

Have fun and Happy Hooking!

Much love,
Em xoxo

  1. I’m having so much fun making these flowers. I’m now only two behind and am hoping to catch up and then post a photo on Instagram today. The best thing has been all the new stitches I’ve learned. I love the idea of attaching them to another piece of crochet. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Fabulous just what I’m looking for. Something small and beautiful that will give me practice on various stitches helping me improve my crocheting and provide a beautiful something at the end. Thanks for the effort and sharing of your skills.
