This sweet, vintage-inspired floral wreath is an ideal project to indulge your love of crochet flowers. The wreath is wrapped in luxury alpaca yarn and the flowers are crochet using linen, which helps ensure they keep their three-dimensional shape. I have chosen a fresh spring palette of mint, orange, pink, yellow, ivory and duck egg blue that is a little bit retro, making this wreath perfectly granny chic!

The pattern is written using standard UK terms and includes clear charts for each flower and leaf motif, and includes a clear written description for preparing the final wreath.
