Springtime Crochet: Flowers Sprouting Up Everywhere
Best Floral Crochet Projects
By Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence
The sun is starting to shine longer and stronger. The birds and bees are beginning to buzz. And flowers are sprouting up everywhere … including on crochet hooks. If you’re feeling the buds of spring like we are, then you might enjoy these floral projects.
Crochet Flower Hats
It’s still cool enough to wear a hat in these early days of spring. A top choice is the floral hats (above) by Linda Cyr that were featured in our May/June 2011 issue. If you’re looking for a free pattern, then download our floral cloche hat pattern(below), originally published in September/October 2008.
Crochet Flower Garments
Cardigans and sweaters with flower designs can put a spring in your step during the cool evening hours. Cristina Mershon’s floral motif jacket (March/April 2013) is a pretty choice that works with many different personal styles.
Crochet Flower Accessories
As the weather begins to get warmer these crochet flower accessories will carry your style through to summer:
April Garwood’s Pouf Purse, featured in May/June 2013.
Amanda Saladin’s 60’s inspired crochet tote bag from our September/October 2012 issue.
Although Linda Permann’s Flowering Necklace from our Quick and Easy Gifts special issue is shown as a holiday evening look, you could easily make it in pops of color to wear with all of your springtime fashions! Or try Sandy Meeks Cherry Blossom Necklace, below.
The Flirty Flops by Maya Mackowiak Elson (July/August 2011) put a personal touch on a basic springtime dress or even your favorite t-shirt and jeans look.
Crochet Flowers for the Home
Bring springtime sunshine into your home with flower crochet projects. Show off what your green thumb can do by decorating indoor flower pots using April Garwood’s crochet pot cover pattern from the March/April 2013 issue. If you aren't into gardening, adorn a cozy can to hold your pencils, pens, and hooks. Need a pattern? Look no further than Linda Permann’s Tin Can Crochet Cozy from September/October 2009.
You could also plant crochet flowers in the form of a throw blanket like the crochet rose blanket pattern by Kim Kotary (March/April 2013).
