This an, intermediate level pattern. But beginners can, and have successfully attempted it with the help of detailed instructions and pictures. In a workshop done in my friends circle, a group of ladies having different skill level had made it beautifully.
Double knit yarn and 3.5 mm hook is used overall for a solid 3d effect .
Guage in not so important. it is fine if your flowers , leaves or doilies are different in size from mine, but it is crucial to use SAME size hook for every piece to achive an overall harmony.
I will suggest to start each flower with a new ball of yarn to avoid joints. Original colours are recommended, but feel free to experiment with different combos if you are happy with it.
I would be really obliged if you link your completed project to the pattern page.
I have based this runner on a net pic for which I can not find any pattern, graph or any other mode of instructions. So I experimented with different techniques and came up with this pattern. Though all the pictures and instructions found in the pattern are my original work.
Hoping to see your beautiful masterpiece
Have a happy crochet day. ❤
