Hello everyone! How are you? I hope you missed me with a new article here for you! This week I managed to separate a very special pattern, because it was a pattern I learned to make with my grandmother before she got sick. I’m sure you will fall in love as I am in love with this pattern. Besides its femininity, it’s perfect as a gift for someone special, it’s very hard for someone to look at it and say they don’t like it, it’s so classic and romantic.
I decided to base the floral patterns for this design on typical British garden flowers, the majority of which I believe would have been in bloom during the time of William and May Morris. While May was a creative artist who frequently drew inspiration from the natural world, William frequently based his work on historical tapestries and enjoyed to look back at existent artifacts. She frequently based her embroidered patterns on flowers and plants from the garden. All the motifs in this design were initially inspired by flowers, fruit, and foliage, and I have given them the names of their original sources. However, this does not imply that they have become accurate representations of how the flowers truly appear. Don’t worry if you were perplexed. For instance, forget-me-nots have blue flowers with five petals, however the ones I crochet have pink flowers with eight petals!
Forget-Me-Nots are my favorite. We no longer have a lot of them in our garden, but I still adore them since they are a clear sign of warmer weather and because they can flourish so profusely in the wild. Although forget-me-nots often have blue blooms, they can also have pink and white blossoms. William Morris produced a wallpaper pattern in 1870 that includes forget-me-nots. You must create 8 full Forget-Me-Not motifs for the first stage of The Fruit Garden CAL. The first segment of the CAL is intended to be a simple crochet workout with an emphasis on making flowers in the round.
Before you begin working on these pieces, please make sure you have read the ‘Getting Ready’ notes.
The project’s square motifs may come in a variety of sizes, but they always have the same stitch count along the outside edge. Don’t worry, after the blanket is put together, the squares will all line up and spread out neatly into position.
The Life DK & Batik version of The Forget-Me-Not motifs are 6 in. (15 cm) square when finished. The Naturals – Bamboo + Cotton variety is 53 8 in (13.5 cm) in length.
A crocheted flower blanket can be used in many ways indoors, adding a touch of beauty and comfort to your spaces. Here are some suggestions of where you can use a crochet blanket with flowers: Sofa: Place the crochet blanket over the backrest or arm of the sofa to add color and texture to the room. In addition to providing coziness, the blanket can be used for warmth on colder days. Armchair: Just as with the sofa, you can place the blanket over an armchair to make it cozier and more decorative. Fold it carefully and leave it tidy to create an elegant look. Bed: A crocheted blanket with flowers can be used as an additional blanket on the bed. You can drape the blanket over the bedspread or fold it over the foot of the bed to add a touch of style to the room.
Wall: If the blanket is especially pretty and decorative, you can hang it on the wall as a piece of textile art. Choose a strategic location where it can be appreciated and complement your existing decor. Rocking chair: If you have a rocking chair at home, a crocheted blanket may be perfect to place over the seat or around the backrest. This will make the chair even more comfortable and visually interesting. Crib: If you have a baby at home, a crocheted flower blanket can be used to decorate the crib. Make sure that the blanket is securely attached and will not pose a risk to the baby. Here are just a few ideas.
