Crochet: A Summer Garland

This is an updated version of the garland I made last summer. With a new super easy flower decoration and a slight twist to the top edging which I think is nicer. I’ve popped full instructions and some photos to help those who are new to crochet into a pdf file (How to Crochet a Flower Garland )which you can download from here or from Craftsy.

I’d love to see photos if you make your own version.

  • So proud of my crochet pupils on today's  workshop at @ditzyrosemakes . Most had never picked up a hook before, but fuelled by copious mugs of tea, cake & mutual encouragement they can now officially call themselves crocheters! Thankyou all for coming & being such fun to work with xxx
#ditzyrosemakes #grannycoolcrochet #crochet #amigurumi #learntocrochet And so it begins - checking the text actually fits the flatplan, swatching, proofreading & wondering why I put myself through this! New book nerves!!! Really looking forward to sharing this one' progress from plans to print over the next few months

#crochet #amigurumi #lovecrochet #naturalfibres #grannycoolcrochet  #horgolás #crochetmakesmehappy #häkeln #crocheteveryday The perfect yarn / button combination? About to cast on a baby cardigan, an excuse to use these beautiful buttons from @textilegarden. I like to use natural fibres and this wool & mohair blend from @thefibrecompany is a firm favourite, especially as it contains a proportion of British wool. We should celebrate our British wool industry & the farmers & shepgerds who give us beautiful, sustainable fibres to work with.

My review copy of @emmavarnam 's new book just arrived. Can't wait to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy this! Perfect inspiration for the ladies on my next granny squares workshop.
#grannysquares #grannysquares rock #grannycoolcrochet #grannysquarelove #amigurumi #crochetblanket Yesterday I made more elderberry jelly, but ran out of jars! Lucky my neighbour saves all hers & what was left is now in  one of my @littlewrenpottery bowls. It feels like we're approaching peak autumn here, the starlings have stripped the rowan tree of its berries, the oak leaves are turning and the forest floor is strewn with sweet chesnuts. This really is my favourite season.
