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.

Finally sewed buttons on this crochet cardi, despite having a drawer full of buttons, I ended up using a scrap of liberty print to cover some blanks. Yarn is @thefibrecompany Luma, which is so soft. The blend of natural fibres  make it perfect for baby makes. I buy mine from @tangledyarnuk . Teeny scissors were bought from @beyond_measure_uk

Yes, I know "everyone" on instagram sleeps under crumpled linen duvets, but after 30 years we're still using the king size Thomas the Tank Engine duvet my mother in law made as a house warming present. The other side has a more femenine print so we can take turns. Secretly, this side is my favourite!!

There's something about this colour palette that makes me want to get my knitting needles out - and another part of me that wants to be prepared & find my recipe for oak gall ink!!! Yes, still early August, but part of me is already embracing autumn!!
