Blooms

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Before I went to TNNA, a couple of weeks ago, I quickly whipped up 9 tiny flowers in our Spud & Chloë Fine. My goal was to make my store-bought cardigan a bit more special. I think it worked. A little flower here and there is always a good thing.

If you want to add a flower or two to something or other here is the simple pattern for you to follow.

Blooms

Yarn: Spud & Chloë Fine (80% superwash wool, 20% silk), a tiny bit in each color, Popcorn #7800, Glow Worm #7801, Clementine #7802, Dachshund #7803, Cricket #7804, Anemone #7805, Calypso #7806, Tutu #7807, Sassafras #7808

Crochet hook: Size 1

Chain 4 and join to form a ring with a slip stitch.

Chain 1. Single crochet 8 into the ring. Join the round with a slip stitch.

*Chain 4. Slip stitch in the next stitch.* Repeat from * to * 9 times to make 9 petals. Join the round with a slip stitch.

Cut the yarn and pull it through the stitch. Weave in the end to the wrong side if not using it to attach to another item

That’s it! How simple is that? Now, I used a needle and thread to stitch my Blooms on my cardigan. If you are going to stitch your Blooms on something you knitted or crocheted leave a longer tail and use that threaded on a yarn needle to whip stitch on. I left the petals free and stitched around the center.

Let me think of all of the things, knit or store-bought, you could flower up in style:

bags, sweaters, hats, blankets, hairbands, headbands, barrettes, buttons (if you made the ring bigger the flower could fit around a buttonhole and the button could pop through the center when buttoned up), scarves, gloves, mittens, dish towels, napkins, etc. This list could go on forever.

Have fun. Flower power rules!
