Crochet Bouquet : Easy Designs for Dozens of Flowers
This work contains crochet bouquets of nearly 50 wonderful flowers, in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours! Created in ribbon, chenille and silk, this contemporary garden will get intermediate-level crocheters grasping their hooks. Some of the flora looks realistic; others are beautifully fanciful, pure products of the imagination. A simple, well-photographed basics section explains how to create them all: specialty techniques include felting, stacking the flowers, stiffening the petals and linking the flowers together. 'Grow' daffodils, dahlias, ferns, primroses, sunflowers and violets - or even a fantastic blossom with layers of scalloped petals radiating out in increasing size from a crystal button centre. For added inspiration, a series of showcase projects incorporates the blossoms, including hats, backpacks, pillows and cards.

Excellent value for money. Very clear easy to follow patterns and a brilliant hints and tips section to help make them flowers that bit extra special. There are leaf patterns to make towards the back of the book and even ideas on what you could use your completed flowers for.show moreby Miss S Mann
