Some crocheters find the humble granny square to be their crochet therapy, but for me it’s flowers - in all colours, sizes and shapes. It is my opinion that an hour spent with a crochet hook and gorgeous floral-coloured yarn making a pile of pretty petals is an hour spent very wisely indeed. I have designed three pretty floral motifs and two sizes of leaves for this garland. The pattern instructions describe one possible arrangement for stringing them together, but with a little imagination they can be combined in dozens of different ways with almost endless colour combinations. Let your imagination run free!

The pattern is written using standard UK terms and includes clear charts for each motif as well as a colour placement diagram for the garland.

Motifs vary from 6 - 6.5cm (2,3/8 - 2,1/2 inches) in diameter.
Length of garland approx. 1.45m (57 inches).

6 rounds of circular motif worked in treble stitches with 12 stitch increase each round = 10cm (4 inches) diameter.
