For me, Spring means new life. And much of that new life and growth can be found in the garden. I particularly LOVE cherry blossom, magnolia blossom and that heady scented apple blossom that can be found lining the avenues of my home town in the spring time. Of course, we haven't had any of that yet, so I've made do with a new hat design. With a flower bursting from its centre, and made in cherry red, I called it Cherry Blossom- and its pattern is in the brand new issue of Inside Crochet magazine.
And so is a little mention of 500 Crochet Blocks!
This pattern was a particularly tricky one to write, and so I decided to share it with an audience of serious crocheters, as well as you guys here.
The styling is gorgeous, so Spring-like and fresh.
I hope you love it and will go out and buy the magazine- it's worth every penny and is packed with some amazing patterns. I particularly recommend it to those who like to come up with their own patterns and stitches- there is a guide to pattern writing and reading, and some beautiful things to make for the kiddiwinks.
Happy hooking everyone!
