I think it’s fair to say that I’m more than a little bit in love with crochet flowers, but as much as I adore pretty petals I can’t resist some cute geometry and this garland is as cute as it gets! The Geometry Garland is a great way to teach little ones their shapes, making it the perfect nursery decoration. I have chosen a pretty Scandi-inspired, gender-neutral palette of colours so it would be the ideal baby shower gift for expectant parents who are keeping a secret.

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 4.5 - 6.5cm (1,3/4 - 2,1/2 inches) in diameter.
Length of garland approx. 1.6m (1,3/4 yards).

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