9 Flower Patterns That Are ‘Blooming’ Marvellous

Us crafters love to turn our hook and needles to floral projects that embrace the sunshine and bring a smile to our faces no matter the weather outside. In issue 101 of Let's Get Crafting we caught up with renowned knitting experts Arne and Carlos and crochet extraordinaire Haafner Linssen to find out why they think flowers are the go-to classic pattern. It's safe to say we were left feeling very inspired, here's nine free projects so you can get started on your summertime florals right away!

2. FEELING ROSY

You don’t have to be green-thumbed to make beautiful flowers that will last all season – you can knit them with Nicola Valiji’s pattern instead! These roses are a great beginner make and, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could choose colours to represent your favourite flowers. Best of all, these are a great stash-buster.

3. GIVE IT SOME HEART

Irene Strange has used summery shades to make a beautiful, bold floral wreath decoration to adorn your wall as the sun begins to shine! This colourful project is great for sending to an unwell friend — not only will it bring a smile to their face, but they will know the wreath truly came from your heart.

4. PURSE AND PETALS

Coin purses are a lot more versatile than you’d think. This design by Sarah Shrimpton easily fits bank cards, lipsticks, keys and much more, as well as loose change of course. The flower patterns are a little challenging, so if you’re a beginner you could substitute in an easier design. Why not try a simple motif from Ali Campbell's flower garland?

6. SUNFLOWER POWER

You really can’t be sad looking at sunflowers, which always look to the bright sky and bring charm and beauty to wherever they may be. With Nicola Valiji’s knitted sunflower design, you can delight in their presence all year-round. We’ve arranged our trio in a vase, but why not knit up more and thread them with ribbon to create pretty bunting?
