Modern Crochet Garden: Stylish Flower & Succulent Patterns to Stitch in a Day
Authors: Amy Gaines
Those who love flowers, succulents, cacti, and crochet will be delighted by this book! Inside, they will find 22 beautifully designed projects that are simple enough to make in a day and stylish enough to display or give as gifts.
The book is organized into two main themes: flower projects and succulent projects. The flower chapter starts with tutorials for making ten flowers, such as a daisy, a rose, and a ranunculus, as well as four kinds of leaves. After readers have mastered the basic elements, they can move on to a variety of flower-based projects. The succulent chapter provides a wide range of plant and cactus projects.
Throughout the book, readers will find
- practical projects like cactus coasters, a cactus pencil holder, a dish scrubber, and a table runner
- decorative items like potted plants, a floral wreath, a garland, a dreamcatcher, and wall art
- personal accessories like floral hair clips, two different purse designs, and a headband
Each project comes with detailed stitch instructions, a shopping list, the finished size, and the skill level. Also included are general crochet instructions, stitch diagrams, and yarn information.
Readers will love adding some green into their lives with this modern guide to crocheting plants and flowers. No watering needed!
