Alexandra's Garden Flowers
A book for crafters and gardeners alike, from hugely popular author Kerry Lord. Thirty super-cute yarn flowers are yours to crochet, complete with step-by-step instructions and tips on all the techniques you need to make and finish off.
Well known for her crocheted animals, Kerry now takes to the garden and turns your favourite flowers into adorable yarn creatures to give as gifts or display at home. With no watering required, they are low maintenance and always in bloom! The 30 patterns include Snowdrop, Primrose, Daffodil, Hyacinth, Tulip, Allium, Chrysanthemum, Rose, Fuchsia, Sunflower, Gerbera, Marigold and Dahlia, and suggestions for alternative colours give you many variations, too.
All the projects are based on a simple bulb shape, allowing you to get started easily. Kerry includes step-by-step instructions and charts for each flower, including how to assemble and finish, plus a guide to all the basic crochet and sewing techniques needed, so this book is perfect for all skill levels. With inspirational photography of the crocheted flowers in the garden with their friends in the soil, it’s a fun must-have for any crochet fan.
