Crochet Home : Decorations

Hello, hello! I am so happy to be able to introduce you to the first chapter of designs in my new book Crochet Home - DECORATIONS! It's an epic! There are seven projects in this chapter, a few of which are fresh twists on designs you will likely recognise from my product range, including the Flower Garlands, Polka Dot Streamer, Paper Flower Charms (I love these sooooo much!) and the cute Geometry Garland. In addition to these pretties there are also three brand spanking new projects I designed for this book, the Blossom Wreath, Day Dreamer Dreamcatcher (one of my personal faves!) and the Oversized Wallflower Hanging. Check them out and tell me which your favourite is...

< FLOWER GARLANDS - 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!

> POLKA DOT STREAMER - These polka dot motifs were originally inspired by antique penny rugs that were hand sewn using woollen clothing scraps to create something new, beautiful and useful. I have chosen my favourite linen yarn to crochet this streamer, which comes in a stunning range of colours and I often have lots of leftovers that are perfect for crocheting polka dot motifs. Thanks to this streamer design, you can keep adding new polka dots whenever your stash of leftovers begins to overflow.

< PAPER FLOWER CHARMS - These flower charms are made using a simple white paper twine, which creates a wonderful lacy effect even in the most basic crochet stitches. They are quick to crochet and can be used to decorate a bare branch all year round, or you could choose a more festive colour palette and give them as gifts during the holiday season.

> GEOMETRY GARLAND - 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.

< BLOSSOM WREATH - 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!

> DAY DREAMER DREAMCATCHER - Dreamcatchers originate from the Ojibwe people of North America who believed they would protect sleeping children from bad dreams. Originally they were hung from the hoop of a cradleboard where the bad dreams would become entangled in the delicate web-like net, allowing only good thoughts to pass through to the dreamer. This belief has now been adopted by many people across the world and I keep one hanging in my studio to remind me not to dwell on negative or uncreative thoughts.

< OVERSIZED WALLFLOWER HANGING - These oversized wallflowers are a fabulous was to add a touch of tactile crochet to your living space. While they can be used individually as trivets around your kitchen and dining table, they look absolutely stunning when joined together to create a colour-blocked geometric wall hanging.
